    British History 1945 - 1990

    British history from 1945 to 1990 divides into two distinct sub-periods.  From 1945 to the mid 1970s there was a degree of policy consensus between the two principal political parties, though we will discuss whether this has at times been over-stated.  From the mid 1970s there was a clear policy choice for the electorate with significant continuing implications for our world today.  Our approach will be thematic.  For each of the sub-periods we will examine in turn the principal political, diplomatic, economic and social events and changes.

    Largo Desolato

    Largo Desolato was written by Vaclav Havel and translated by Czech-born Tom Stoppard. The play speaks to our present obsession with “fake news” and our constant fear for our privacy. Havel struggled to accept the importance his words held for those who leaned on them during the troubled times of the Cold War; it might startle him to learn that they have transcended time and are still relevant.
