A Political History of the UK 1945 - 2017 : Steve Lowe

"We will start at the end of World War II, a time of great pride, but also of shortages and a desperate need to rebuild.  We will follow the political history through that gradual rebuild, to the Swinging Sixties, the strike torn 1970s, the Thatcher 'revolution', and the beginning of the European question, to this century, as the UK went from Cool Britannia to financial crisis to leaving the EU. And where are we going next?"
