This review is from: Modernity Britain: Book One: Opening the Box, 1957-1959 (Modernity Britain Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This is the third in Kynaston's amazing series - Austerity Britain and Family Britain are the first two. It is Part One of two, as the rest of the book will take us up to 1968 I think. They are an amazingly accessible vox pop journey through post WWII Britain, and the insight and immediacy of the writing and content is quite outstanding. I was born in 1942, so for me it is as if I am watching my own lifetime unfold in front of me. Don't be put off if you usually avoid history - these are different. One follows individuals through time, hearing what they feel about events, what they were doing, what they were buying, how they see politicians and celebrities. Don't delay - buy them today!
