Re-examining the long-held belief that the Sixties in Britain were dominated mainly by 'youth' and 'protest', the authors in the collection argue that innovation was everywhere shadowed by conservatism. A decade fascinated by itself and, especially, by the future, it also was tormented by self-doubt and accompanied by a fear of losing the past.

"This edited collection makes a valuable contribution to the study of the 1960s in Britain. ... the fact that the co-editors, along with several contributors, are based at French universities gives Preserving the Sixties a fresh `outsider' perspective on contemporary British history. And the collection is likely to become an important source for historians and students of 1960s Britain." (Christoph Laucht, Journal of Contemporary History, Vol. 52 (2), April, 2017)
