What was it really like to live through the twentieth century? In 1910 three-quarters of the population were working class, but their story has been ignored until now. Selina Todd will be speaking about her book The People: The Rise and Fall of the Working Class 1910-2010 (Hodder and Stoughton), which charts the rise of the working class, through two world wars to their fall in Thatcher’s Britain and today.
Selina Todd is Fellow and Vice Principal of St Hilda’s College, Oxford, and a highly respected social historian. Her first book, Young Women, Work, and Family in England, won the Women’s History Network Book Prize.
