9781849549127: 1956: The Year That Changed Britain
Présentation de l'éditeur :

1956: a defining year that heralded the modern era.

Britain and France occupied Suez, and the Soviet Union tanks rolled into Hungary. Nikita Khrushchev's 'secret speech' exposed the crimes of Stalin, and the Royal Court Theatre unveiled John Osborne's Look Back in Anger. Rock 'n' roll music was replacing the gentle pop songs of Mum and Dad's generation, and it was the first full year of independent television.

As post-war assumptions were shattered, the upper middle class was shaken and the communist left was shocked, radical new ideas about sex, skiffle and socialism emerged, and attitudes shifted on an unprecedented scale - precipitated by the decline of Attlee's Britain and the first intimations of Thatcher's.

From politics and conflict to sport and entertainment, this extraordinary book transports us back in time on a whirlwind journey through the history, headlines and happenings of this most momentous of years, vividly capturing the revolutionary spirit of 1956 - the year that changed Britain.

Revue de presse :

"Beckett and Russell have done a wonderful job of recreating 1956, the year that shaped the rest of the century. They have brilliantly illuminated the taste and texture of the mid-1950s - the shift in class, culture and perception of Britain, the music, the theatre, the cinema, the momentous politics, the sex (or lack of it) - so that those of us who were there can recognise it instantly, and those who were not will understand why it was so pivotal. An important and absorbing living history book." -- Neil Kinnock

"A wonderfully evocative and thoughtful account of a year that saw the ends and beginnings that explain why and how we got to today." -- Michael Rosen

"Francis Beckett and Tony Russell make an indisputable case for 1956 as 'the year that changed Britain'." -- Daily Mail
