Synopsis

A nostalgic look back over the life and times of the post-war baby boomer generation, covering the period from 1945 to 2012. From the war-torn streets and ration books of the forties and fifties to the surveillance culture and paperless technology of the 21st Century. Britain and the British way of life have changed considerably since the Second World War and the baby boomer generation has witnessed it all. They have been there, done that, and got several T-shirts along the way. Anyone who was a teenager in the 1960s will never grow old; they will just continue to mature gracefully as they have always done, and they will come to be known as the most 'with it' pensioners ever. This book details what happened along the way.    -    Paul Feeney.

BBC Radio Gloucestershire - 18 September 2012

“A new book from the very readable author and social historian Paul Feeney - From Ration Book to ebook – will entertain as well as inform you. . . . As he looks back over the last 60 years, he paints a definitive picture of what it was like to live through the momentous second half of the 20th century, and examines how life has changed in modern Britain. . . . He evokes striking memories of innocent childhood years in austerity, family life and society as well as the historical events that shaped a generation. . . . . He is the author of acclaimed bestseller A 1950s Childhood. . . . . Feeney knows his stuff and the 30 or so black and white photographs are testament to the changing times he’s witnessed in these past decades.”
