Individualism and the Search for Community in Post-war England

Jon Lawrence

  • A re-telling of the history of England and it's relationship with community and individualism, from 1945 to the present day
  • Maps the changes that have faced and altered communities, and explores their political implications
  • Illuminates the ways in which ordinary people have made sense of, and helped to shape, the transformation of everyday life in England
  • Jon Lawrence considers how the quintessentially small, personal stories about life can humanize the big narratives of history--including those told by his own parents and family
