The Labour Governments 1964-1970 Vol 1

Labour and Cultural Change

Steven Fielding

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Deals with how the Labour government and the Labour party as a whole tried to come to terms with the cultural revolution of the 1960s
  • Discusses how the Labour government responded to the momentous changes to the class structure, the changing place of women in society, growing immigration, the generation gap and increasing calls for direct participation in politics
  • Grounded in original research that uniquely takes account of responses from the Labour Party's grass roots and from the Ministers in the Wilson governments, to construct a total history of the party at this very important time
  • The book will be of interest to all those concerned with the development of contemporary British politics and society as well as those researching the 1960s
