Hard Lines: Voices from Deep within a Recession

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


'This is a book about Britain during a time of change. Britain in the 1980s and the early to mid 1990s. Britain under the Tories, Conservative but with radical political and economic agenda. A series of Conservative governments, who did not wish to keep existing conditions unchanged. Conservatives who were anything but cautious and moderate. Conservatives who had a mandate and a mission to halt Britain's sharp economic decline which had, most analysts seem to agree, been going on since the end of the Second World War. It needed strong measures, they said, to halt this decline. Immoderate measures. This is a book about the human consequences of all of these immoderate measures.' (from the cover)
