Well, it's been 15 months in the researching and writing. I wanted to get to grips with the usual and not so well known aspects of the 1960s. So plenty on the "swinging 60s", but also on the "other 60s" of religion (e.g. ecumenism), immigration, and housing. Abortion and Humanae Vitae also covered! Ealing in the 1960s forms the basis for my talk on the same subject at:
