Dominic Sandbrook’s Seasons in the Sun: The Battle for Britain, 1974-1979, is just a week away

I am not sure we are on the same page politically, but I really love Dominic Sandbrook’s books about Britain. And next week part four – which covers the Wilson/Callaghan and rise of Thatcher era, arrives.

There have been lots of other recent histories of Britain, but I don’t think any other writer has the knack of bringing together politics, culture and social history of the era in such a seamless way. There’s also a big BBC series to accompany the book too. That’s April sorted then.
