A classless society : Britain in the 1990s

Turner, Alwyn W.2013
Books
When Margaret Thatcher was ousted from Downing Street in 1990, it appeared that Britain had reached a crossroads. After years of bitter social and economic conflict, many believed that the decade to come would be more 'caring'; others hoped that the radical policies of her revolution might even be overturned. However, the 'new' Britain to emerge under John Major and Tony Blair would be a contradiction: both economically unequal and culturally classless. Opening with a war in the Gulf and ending with the September 11 attacks, this book goes in search of the decade in which modern Britain came of age.
