When did postwar Britain end? How far from 1945 have we come? In a series of thought-provoking chapters, the distinguished contributors to this volume compare the current epoch with the period immediately following World War II. They explore the following key areas: party governments, judicial law, the premiership and broadcasting. This collection examines whether there has been a significant turning point in British history since 1945, and in doing so points to the substantial changes in attitude of the 1960s.
