Product description

Review

A must-read history, an intimate picture of a country trying to
pick itself up after the war... A colossal undertaking and a magnificent
history' Sue Baker, Book of the Month,
-- Publishing News, Sue Baker, Book of the Month.

A wonderfully illuminating picture of the way we were. -- Roy Hattersley, The Times

Almost implausibly entertaining. Kynaston's rivetingly enjoyable
book has a quality of glorious abundance and plenty' -- Philip Hensher, Spectator

As social history, Austerity Britain brings off the very difficult
trick of combining chronological flow and themed discussion into a seamless
narrative. -- D.J. Taylor, Independent

Austerity Britain is a cracking read. The Attlee years have been
covered before, notably in scholarly political histories by Kenneth Morgan
and Peter Hennessy, but Kynaston's book is both more evocative and more
entertaining than both. -- Dominic Sandbrook, Daily Telegraph

Austerity Britain kicks off a series by the same author that will
end in 1979, with the election of Margaret Thatcher. What a treat we have
in store. -- Craig Brown's Book of the Week, Mail on Sunday

Even readers who can remember the years Kynaston writes about will
find they are continually surprised by the richness and diversity of his
material. -- John Carey, Sunday Times

One of the greatest and most enduring publishing ventures for
generations. It is very hard to praise the author too highly... this book
is both a history and a triumphant work of art.
-- Brian Thompson, Observer

This is a classic; buy at least three copies - one for yourself
and two to give to friends and family... [A] fascinating book. Kynaston's
eye for the telling quotation enables him to fix the spirit of the age with
just the right tone. -- John Charmley, Guardian

This is social history fashioned into narrative on the grand scale
... Austerity Britain is an outstanding portrait of an age. -- Paul Addison, Literary Review

Dominic Sandbrook, Daily Telegraph

Austerity Britain is a cracking read. The Attlee years have been
covered before, notably in scholarly political histories by Kenneth Morgan
and Peter Hennessy, but Kynaston's book is both more evocative and more
entertaining than both.
