Format: Paperback
by mixing accounts of normal peoples lives and those of the more familiar faces of the period, such as Clement Atlee and Herbert Morrisson. All of which is carried out in a detached but not emotionally removed fashion. For someone keen to develop an interest in Britian during this period or a person who merely wishes to pursue an interest. I highly recommend this multi-faceted book. That is enjoyed irrespective of your level of knowledge of the era, as it begins with a helpful "recap" of the turbulent and important war years.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By J. Holden on 10 Nov. 2010
Format: Paperback
Born in 1945, I have almost no recollection of life under Attlee's government. It seems a strange era to modern eyes, so different from today's Britain. It was an era in which momentous changes to the shape of our Society were made; changes which shape the polity we know now. I borrowed Peter Hennessy's book from the library some years ago and was rivetted. Returning it, I wanted the librarian to insert a "post-it" which said "Read me - I'm worth it!" I bought the book for myself in anticipation of attending one of Peter Hennessy's lectures. My wife, who is substantially non-political, picked it up and hasn't put it down since. It is that compelling. In person, Peter Hennessy bears his erudition lightly and this carries through to his writing. (He has also, in recent times particularly, become a familiar media figure, commenting on the constitutional aspects of the political world). This is not an entirely easy read, but it is a very good read. It is a serious book for serious people on a seriously interesting period of modern history. I commend it.
