From Anger To Apathy Summary

From Anger To Apathy: The Story of Politics, Society and Popular Culture in Britain since 1975 by Mark Garnett

In this groundbreaking new book, Mark Garnett charts the changes in British politics, society and culture since 1975. In the mid-1970s Britons spent much of their time complaining - and seemingly for good reason. A Labour government with a wafer-thin majority was struggling in vain against rampant inflation; the headlines were full of strikes, serial killers and sporting disasters; while in the streets anti-fascist demonstrators clashed with the racists of the National Front. Britain in the early years of the twenty-first century seems a very different and much quieter place, but is it as 'apathetic' as the political commentators argue? And were the 1970s really as 'angry' as people believed?

From Anger To Apathy Reviews

"Eye-openingly good" * New Statesman *
"A bold and unexpected argument... a fascinating book" * Guardian *
"Thoroughly compelling... Garnett is a fine guide to the sheer grimness of life 30 years ago, and his evocative tour d'horizon of Britain in 1975 shows off his ability to handle both high politics and low culture" * Daily Telegraph *
"Engaging... He has an eye for the off-beat detail and newspaper reports that capture the flavour of the period" * Times Literary Supplement *
"A convincing analysis...this survey asks some interesting questions about our social history and offers the first steps towards answering them" * Metro *
