Since 1945, Britain's political and cultural landscape has been transformed by social movements campaigning on issues of gender, race, disability, sexuality, the environment, and peace. Yet until now there has been no systematic attempt to chart the histories of these movements alongside one another. From early attempts to decriminalize gay sex to the movement against globalization, this book gives fresh insights into a neglected side of British history.
