Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This book looks at how the British Labour Party came to terms with the 1960's 'cultural revolution', specifically changes to: the class structure, place of women, black immigration, the generation gap and calls for direct political participation.

Originally published: 2003

Includes bibliographical references and index

Grounded in original research, this volume takes account of responses from Labour's grass roots and from Harold Wilson's ministerial colleagues, and constructs a 'total history' of the party at this critical moment in history.
