Críticas:

there is a hugely impressive breadth of reference and eye for detail on display here. ( Lawrence Black, Journal of Modern History, on Seeking a Role and Finding a Role?)

These two magisterial volumes... [ Seeking a Role and Finding a Role?]... offer a consistently stimulating and formidably well-informed analysis of the condition of England since 1950, as it was shaped both by the wider world and its own internal development. ( Richard Whiting, History)

He provides a huge flow of information on almost all topics...all treated in fascinating detail. ( Kenneth O.Morgan, Literary Review)

Harrison has a special gift which historians prize. He can turn the grains of history into fascinating and convincing patterns. ( Peter Hennessy, Times Literary Supplement)

Full of surprising details and impressive insights. ( Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times)

Seeking a Role is not only vastly informative, but it is also a terrific read. ( Peter Weiler, Twentieth Century British History)

A wonderfully readable summation of this crucial and endlessly fascinating period of Britain's recent past...a masterly account ( Matthew Grant, Political Quarterly)

Magnificent if demanding history... all couched in an enviable prose style...the reader comes away from the text with a sense that he or she has learnt the history of a people, not just of its elite. ( Neal Blewett, Australian Book Review)

A sweeping assessment of British history... Comprehensive and thorough...the definitive starting point for any student or academic wishing to engage with this complex and fascinating period. ( LIMINA: A Journal of Historical and Cultural Studies, on Seeking a Role and Finding a Role?)

No short review can do justice to the richness and complexity of this book ... A major achievement of modern historical analysis ( D.L.LeMahieu, CHOICE)

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 166 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this, the first of two self-standing volumes bringing The New Oxford History of England up to the present, Brian Harrison begins in 1951 with much of the empire intact and with Britain enjoying high prestige in Europe. The United Kingdom could still then claim to be a great power, whose welfare state exemplified compromise between Soviet planning and the USA s free market. When the volume ends in 1970, no such claims carried conviction. The empire had gone, central planning was in trouble, and even the British political system had become controversial. In an unusually wide-ranging, yet impressively detailed volume, Harrison approaches the period from unfamiliar directions. He explains how British politicians in the 1950s and 1960s responded to this transition by pursuing successive roles for Britain: worldwide as champion of freedom, and in Europe as exemplar of parliamentary government, the multi-racial society, and economic planning. His main focus, though, rests not on the politicians but on the decisions the British people made largely for themselves: on their environment, social structure and attitudes, race relations, family patterns, economic framework, and cultural opportunities. By 1970 the consumer society had supplanted postwar austerity, the socialist vision was fading, and the sixties (the theme of his penultimate chapter) had introduced new and even exotic themes and values. Having lost an empire, Britain was still resourcefully seeking a role: it had yet to find it. Nº de ref. de la librería AOP9780198204763
