MEDIA REVIEWS

'In [the book], Blackshaw sets up the 'Inbetweeners', a generation that spans a good deal of the 20th century sitting between an earlier traditional solid working-class and those of the later 'boomer' generation [it] shows us how modern Britain was forged before, during and after the war. The shape of work, industrial relations, post-war political affiliations, and housing tenure are all powerfully influenced by the politics of class. We learn too of the importance of working-class organization and solidarity built across generations.'- Sociology , Volume 48
