    One thought on “Literature, Politics and Culture in Postwar Britain”

    1. As an analysis of literature and culture in post-war Britain, this is indeed fabulous. Sinfield occasionally makes idiotic, hyperbolic comments, but in general his writing is clear and the ways he connects literary works to social change is tremendously convincing. The book's structure is great: not historical in the sense that each chapter recounts a specific period, but also not thematic in the sense that it jumps around from year to year; somehow he manages to have an historical flow combined [...]

    2. Writing contemporary cultural history is extremely difficult, but Sinfield manages to explore and reveal links between cultural, economic, social, and political experiences of post-WWII Britain. One of the best bits of contemporary history there is.
