Book DescriptionThis work captures the rapid growth of social organizations in 1960s England, vividly detailing what if felt like to be there at the beginning of a social organization and the dire political and economic circumstances that prompted their creation. Collecting stories from the inspired groups that created many of modern-day England's most prominent community institutions, this book conveys the struggles and success of these groups, explaining how, in time, many came to be excepted and relied-upon aspects of the English social fabric. Thirty-eight important figures from this tumultuous time in British history are interviewed, including the founders of groups like Shelter, the Claimants Union, and the North Kensington Law Centre.
