`Few historians have the power to make you feel you actually inhabit the times they are writing about. Kynaston does. Crowding the pages of this exhaustive look at post-war Britain with hundreds of voices from all walks of life, he summons up the spirit of the age with precision and generosity' --Sunday Times, Book of the Decade
