No Turning Back

The Peaceful Revolutions of Post-War Britain

Paul Addison

  • Takes the long view of British history since the Second World War, showing how a series of peaceful revolutions has completely transformed the country that existed at mid-century
  • Brings the personal perspective of someone who has lived through it all and seen the Britain of his youth turn into the very different country of today - in society, economics, culture, and social mores
  • Captures a sense of both what has been gained and what has been lost in the transformations of the last sixty years
