Summary
The late 1950s and early 1960s was an action-packed, dramatic time in which the contours of modern Britain started to take shape: when mass affluence began to change the tastes and even the character of the working class; when films like Saturday Night and Sunday Morning and TV soaps like Coronation Street brought the working class to the center of the national frame; when Britain gave up its empire; when 'youth' emerged as a fully fledged cultural force; and when the Lady Chatterley trial, followed by the Profumo scandal, at last signaled the end of Victorian morality. Kynaston argues that a deep and irresistible modernity zeitgeist was at work, in these and many other ways, and he reveals as never before how that spirit of the age unfolded, with consequences that still affect us today
