Post-war childhood and adolescence
in Young lives on the Left
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter presents stories of childhood and early adolescence to consider the beginnings of radical subjectivity and journeys towards left enclaves. It situates the protagonists’ stories against existing studies of post-war family life in order to show how they fit into prevalent patterns of social continuity and change, and to emphasise their role as agents challenging the post-war social and domestic consensus. Through attention to early structures of feeling or underlying feeling, it shows how encounters and experiences in the family home, school, and local community intersected with the wider national and international world, to forge often uneasy and disputatious relationships with the post-war landscape.
