Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192892266, Paperback)This engaging book sets English literature since 1960 in its political and cultural context. From the end of empire in the sixties, through the attempts in the 1970s to maintain a "common culture" through education, good literature, and state subsidies for the Arts, to the 1980s when there was a shift toward the acknowledgement of a multiplicity of cultures, this was a period of considerable change and development. Waugh looks at the effects of the fragmentation of English culture and examines the new and varied voices that grew up as a result of this proliferation of cultures.
