Item information


Softback. Red cover with white title and picture of an industrial town street.

David Kynaston’s Austerity Britain 1945-51, the first book in his series Tales of a New Jerusalem, was a major Sunday Times bestseller in 2007. Here is the second volume from this landmark book covering 1948-51. Continuing his ground breaking series about post-war Britain, Kynaston presents a breathtaking portrait of our nation through eyewitness accounts, newspapers of the time and previously unpublished diaries. Drawing on the everyday experiences of people from all walks of life, Smoke in the Valley covers the length and breadth of the country to tell its story. This is an unsurpassed social history.
