Rezension:

An active pleasure to read. This is a deftly written and evocative account of the day before yesterday ... ( Peter Hitchens, MAIL on Sunday, Books of The Year)

A substantial contribution to our understanding of the social and political history of modern Britain ( SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

This is history of a commendably inclusive range ( SUNDAY TIMES)

This second volume lives up to the promise of the first ... Sandbrook is an inveterate demolisher of myths ( INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

Vom Verlag:

Harold Wilson's famous reference to 'white heat' captured the optimistic spirit of a society in the midst of breathtaking change. From the gaudy pleasures of Swinging London to the tragic bloodshed in Northern Ireland, from the intrigues of Westminster to the drama of the World Cup, British life seemed to have taken on a dramatic new momentum.

The memories, images and colourful personalities of those heady times still resonate today: mop-tops and mini-skirts, strikes and demonstrations, Carnaby Street and Kings Road, Harold Wilson and Edward Heath, Mary Quant and Jean Shrimpton, Enoch Powell and Mary Whitehouse, Marianne Faithfull and Mick Jagger.

In this wonderfully rich and readable historical narrative, Dominic Sandbrook looks behind the myths of the Swinging Sixties to unearth the contradictions of a society caught between optimism and decline.
