I remember seeing recently a book which took the opposite tack to Barnett; a history of Britain since 1945 arguing that the postwar governments had actually done a very good job and greatly improved the British standard of living. I can't remember what it was called. I think it was published sometime in the last 10 years. Can anyone help?
The Myth of Decline: The Rise of Britain Since 1945 by George Bernstein sounds like it's the book I was thinking of.
