Never Had It So Good

Book: Never Had It So Good: A History of Britain from Suez to the Beatles
Author: Dominic Sandbrook
Reviewer: Babi Hammond, Special Collections Research Center, NCSU Libraries

Sandbrook’s 2005 history is lively and awesomely broad in scope, taking in politics, economics, sociology, literature and popular culture. It’s a fascinating look at an era I knew mostly from some of the music and movies it produced. I’m not quite done with it yet, but can’t wait to start in on its sequel, White Heat: A History of Britain in the Swinging Sixties (2006).
