Description - The Way We Live Now by Richard Hoggart

'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".
