Description


Taking a fresh look the history of northern working-class life in the second half of the twentieth century, this book turns to the concept of generation and generational change. Using life history research conducted with the intermediary generation that preceded the Boomers, the author explores Zygmunt Bauman's bold vision of modern historical change as the shift from solid modernity to liquid modernity. Blackshaw argues that this shift was marked by a 'pure event' that led to the onset of the twentieth-century Interregnum in which 'a great variety of interesting phenomena did appear', but most notably a revolution in everyday life that radically altered the reigning structures of time and order.
