F.B.A. provides an in-depth photographic presentation of this item to stimulate your feel and touch. More traditional book descriptions are immediately available.

Based on interviews with all manner of people this is a chronicle of Britain’s predicament after two world wars and loss of Empire in a high-tech single-world economy. Critchfield takes us behind the scenes and shows us the new shape of politics, economics and the arts as seen through American eyes. He looks at the price Britain continues to pay for its class and cultural divisions, and sees the best hope for Britain’s future in what Churchill called “science and democracy”, a vastly expanded educational system that ends, not perpetuates, the class system.
