    The first in Kynaston's Tales of a New Jerusalem, his series of studies of postwar Britain, this book covers the immediate aftermath of the Second World War and describes the resurrection of an exhausted country and how Clement Attlee's Labour government shaped the political, economic and social landscape for the remainder of the 20th century. It includes an astonishing variety of contemporary voices, from the Chingford housewife coping with rationing to the pipe dreams of an optimistic pit worker.
