Young Lives on the Left : Sixties Activism and the Liberation of the Self

Hughes, Celia
Format: Paperback
Published: September 30, 2018
ISBN: 9781526133779
328 pages


This book examines the coming of age experiences of young men and women who became active in radical Left circles in 1960s England. Based on a rich collection of oral history interviews, the book follows in depth the stories of approximately twenty individuals to offer a unique perspective of what it meant to be young and on the Left in the post-war landscape. The book will be essential reading for researchers of twentieth-century British social, cultural and political history.

However, it will be of interest to a general readership interested in the social protest movements of the long 1960s. –
