Seeking a Role

The United Kingdom 1951—1970

Brian Harrison

New Oxford History of England

  • 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 everthing from international relations to the family
  • Focuses not just on the politicians but also on the choices made by the people themselves - on the environment, social structure and attitudes, race relations, family patterns, economic framework, and cultural attitudes
