Thus the Cold War had begun, and culture was assigned a strikingly important role in it. In Leopold Senghor, the spokes person for the West European Union, ranked culture alongside military defense as a means to protect Western European unity. I could not find much that could properly be described as political art in British post war.   Cynicism is a neglected subject for investigation in post-war British cultural history, perhaps due to its apparent omnipresence. Kieran Curran aims to rectify this omission by lucidly connecting together literature, music and film as common avatars of the cynic : Kieran Curran.

In Post-War Britain cultural interventions were a feature of fascist parties and movements, just as they were in Europe. This book makes a new major contribution to existing scholarship which begins to discuss British fascism as a cultural phenomenon. A collection of essays from leading academics, this book uncovers how a cultural struggle lay at the heart of the hegemonic projects of all. Other novelists and playwrights of the s, often called the angry young men, expressed a deep dissatisfaction with British society, combined with despair that anything could be done about it. While the postwar era was not a great period of English literature, it produced a variety of excellent critics, including William Empson, Frank.

MacPhee argues in his most recent book Postwar British Literature and Postcolonial Studies, tracing the presence of empire in metropolitan culture “requires a sensitivity to the displaced and often submerged ways in which this [colonial] legacy informs conceptions of individual and collective identity.”.   Youth Culture and the Post-War British Novel is a lively contribution to a growing area of postwar and contemporary literary studies. Ross's style is at once accessible and engaging, and his book offers new ways of thinking about the importance of youth culture to a range of novels from the latter half of the twentieth century.
