The Making of Modern Britain
*Some of our courses are available online via Zoom sessions
This course begins with Harold Wilson’s administration in 1964 and ends with the exit of Margaret Thatcher from Downing Street in 1990. It is a crucial period in the making of modern Britain, a period which saw the decline and fall of the age of consensus. Mrs Thatcher transformed Britain during the 1980s, but the changes that she brought about had their origins in the 1960s and 1970s. There were eight different governments during these years, four Labour and four Conservative administrations. A great deal of the social, economic, and political landscape in today’s Britain was formed during these crucial decades.
