White Heat: A History of Britain in the Swinging Sixties 1964-1970

By

This is a sequel to the author’s Never Had It So Good – a political and social history of Britain from 1956-1963. It is a massive and hugely informative, an entertaining read. For anyone who lived through this period, it provides a coherent and authoritative structure to those brilliant and (occasionally) electrifying times. Britain in the 1960s was a society split between looking back to the days of Empire and economic pre-eminence, whilst also having to look forward to the rise of youth, technology and emancipation throughout society. Fully footnoted and referenced, the book opens up a veritable library of associated reading. A fascinating work.
