Taking up the story in the summer of 1948 as the first post-war Olympics opened at Wembley, the second book of Kynaston's engrossing social history follows Labour through its second term (Attlee now being driven by his wife in a Humber instead the Hillman Minx). Quoting from a myriad first-hand accounts and contemporary documents, Kynaston gives an evocative account of British life, particularly in the key areas of industry, education and housing.
