Way We Live Now by Richard Hoggart

Book Description

'This is his most powerful book since "The Uses of Literacy" and...deserves to be equally widely read' - "Sunday Times". Richard Hoggart is one of Britain's most distinguished cultural critics. In this clear-eyed and controversial book he sets himself to take the temperature of the nation at the end of the 20th century - to test its blood for health and heartiness, sample its imagination for largeness and magnanimity, conduct examinations of its intelligence, judgement and moral sense. As always, he makes us see how responsible we all are for the way we live now. 'Compelling, very important' - "New Statesman and Society".

Books By Author Richard Hoggart

Uses of Literacy by Richard Hoggart Uses of Literacy, Paperback (October 2009)

When a society becomes more affluent, does it lose other values? Are the skills that education and literacy gave millions wasted on consuming pop culture? Do the media coerce us into a world of the superficial and the material - or can they be a force for good? This book asks these questions.

Road to Wigan Pier by Richard Hoggart Road to Wigan Pier, Paperback (February 2001)

Deals with the working-class life in the bleak industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire in the 1930s, the Road to Wigan Pier is a brilliant and bitter polemic that has lost none of its political impact over time. This title includes descriptions of social injustice, cramped slum housing, dangerous mining conditions, squalor, and more.

Way of All Flesh by Richard Hoggart Way of All Flesh, Paperback (July 1973)

Throws a subversive brick at the smug face of Victorian domesticity. Published in 1903, a year after Butler's death, this novel is a thinly disguised account of his own childhood and youth 'in the bosom of a Christian family'.
