Social History With A Smile

Another highly entertaining review of Modernity Britain, by David Kynaston, covering the years 1957-59 (Charles Moore’s review was also recommended). “The Kynaston method of compiling a vast array of sources and applying them with equal zest to the momentous and the ephemeral guarantees a rattling read. This is social, cultural and political history, more or less in that order, with a smile on its face” (2,000 words)
