From Anger to Apathy by Mark Garnett

Book Description

In this groundbreaking new book, Mark Garnett charts the changes in British politics, society and culture since 1975. In the mid-1970s Britons spent much of their time complaining - and seemingly for good reason. A Labour government with a wafer-thin majority was struggling in vain against rampant inflation; the headlines were full of strikes, serial killers and sporting disasters; while in the streets anti-fascist demonstrators clashed with the racists of the National Front. Britain in the early years of the twenty-first century seems a very different and much quieter place, but is it as 'apathetic' as the political commentators argue? And were the 1970s really as 'angry' as people believed?

British General Elections Since 1964 by Mark Garnett British General Elections Since 1964, Hardback (February 2014)

The first book to look at a succession of British general elections in significant detail. By starting the survey in 1964 rather than the traditional date of 1945, it can also focus more rigorously on the changes which began in the 1960s and still affect general elections today.

From Crisis to Coalition by Mark Garnett From Crisis to Coalition, Hardback (May 2011)

In 2010 the Conservative Party returned to office after over a decade of largely ineffective opposition to New Labour. This book explains why it took so long to recover, and why the party was unable to win an overall majority despite the charismatic leadership of David Cameron. It covers all aspects of Conservative Party politics since 1997.
