When Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in 1953, there were many who proclaimed that a new Elizabethan Age had begun. Few could have any inkling, however, of the stupendous changes that were going to take place, in Britain and around the world. The collapse of British power in the world and the near-evaporation of its wealth were established facts, but few people had even begun to understand them.

In the third book in A. N. Wilson's acclaimed histories, Our Times follows the beginnings of modern Britain from the 1950s with the Suez crisis, immigration, the Angry Young Men, and Harold Macmillan, to the 1960s and changes in attitudes towards divorce and homosexuality, the rise of satire, and the boom in pop music and fashion. It continutes through the 1970s, with Vietnam and the Cold War looming large and the Labour government that ushered in the Winter of Discontent, to the Thatcher government of the '80s and the collapse of the Soviet Union, which signalled the end of a political era in Britain, up to the current period of, according to Wilson, unprecedented peace and prosperity.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"No review can do justice to the richness, liveliness and sheer fun of this book. Wilson has written one of the books of the year." (Guardian)
"A very funny, extremely opinionated, always provocative and often thoughtful read....Wilson is endlessly entertaining." (Dominic Sandbrook, Observer)
