Product description


Joan Bakewell in The Sunday Times, 29 Feb 2004: "... Running parallel to formal government policies, interacting with them and stepping in wherever they were seen to fail, came a tide of self-help, grass-roots activities: from Shelter to the Child Poverty Action Group, from the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants to Consumer Advice Centres. ... The Unsung Sixties well and truly celebrates great achievements from small beginnings." --The Sunday Times

Polly Toynbee in Society Guardian, 11 Feb 2004: "... The moment this book landed on my desk, I kicked myself for not having thought of it myself. The Unsung Sixties: Memoirs fo Social Innovation, by Helene Curtis and Mimi Sanderson, will come as one of those eye-opening 'Of course!' moments to a lot of people who grew up in that decade. ..." --The Guardian
