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 methodical attempt to chart the histories of these movements alongside one another. From early attempts to decriminalise gay sex to the movement against globalisation, Sex, Colour, Peace and Power takes a comprehensive approach to social movements that allows fresh insight into a neglected side of British history.
