Seeking a Role

I note the appearance of a new general survey of the period from 1951 to 1970 by Brian Harrison, which has some things to say about religious change (published by Oxford University Press). One of his organising motifs is apparently the strained negotiations between ‘secularized materialism’ and older values derived from the Christian past. It is reviewed very favourably by Peter Hennessy in the TLS, May 6th, and by Dominic Sandbrook in the Sunday Times.
See earlier post on Hugh McLeod’s book on the Sixties.
