Seeking a Role

The United Kingdom 1951—1970

Brian Harrison

New Oxford History of England

  • The first of two self-standing volumes bringing the New Oxford History of England series up to the present
  • Covers the period from the welfare optimism of the early 1950s through to the uncertainties and disintegrating consensus of the early 1970s
  • Wide-ranging yet impressively detailed - covering everything from international relations to the family
  • Focuses not just upon the politicians but upon the choices made by the people themselves - on the environment, social structure and attitudes, race relations, family patterns, economic framework, and cultural attitudes
