The second seeks to identify the main 152 The Nordic model c­ haracteristics of the ‘Swedish model’ in its heyday in the 1960s. The third section considers the extent of the deviation from the model elsewhere in the Nordic region. Finally, it is asked whether the model has become little more than a receding memory.

previous chapter looked at some of the roles of nationalist families in the reproduction of Basque nationalism in the post-war period. This chapter will analyse the place of the Church and cuadrilla in the development of ETA in the 1950s and 1960s. It will also examine patterns of paid labour in the 1960s, and how differences between women and men influenced access to politics. While women were largely excluded from those institutions in which men came into contact with nationalism, they were more likely to become active through cultural organisations. ETA’s early

in the overall context of intra-state peacekeeping, but also further develop an important element of our argument, namely that the two periods under scrutiny (i.e. the early 1960s and the early 1990s) constituted critical thresholds in intra-state peacekeeping, each with its own particular normative resolution as to the UN’s objectives and authority. We will demonstrate how the interests and normative

campaigns.3 In depicting advertising practitioners as part of what journalist Christopher Booker called ‘the glamorous world of communication’ in his study of the making of 1960s London, London Life echoed a broader fascination with and desire to mythologize London’s new cultural and commercial elites, including advertising people. This was the same pantheon of creative talent captured in one of the most celebrated depictions of the new breed of celebrity associated with ‘Swinging London’: David Bailey’s Box of Pin-Ups. Designed by Mark Boxer and with a text by Queen and

Conclusion The emergence of ‘second wave’ feminism in the late 1960s signified a new phase in the history of the women’s movement. As Pat Thane writes, the WLM was ‘overwhelmingly a movement of younger women and tended 1 to be hostile or indifferent to constitutional action through parliament’. This new movement rejected formal organisational structures, debated class difference and attracted significant media attention with its new, radical style of direct action and political campaigning. Moreover, the WLM for the first time challenged traditional gender roles

Introduction The late 1960s signified a break with the post-war optimism regarding growth. The post-war view of growth as a promise for social development was replaced by understandings of growth as a threat to social progress, and as a source of new problems in a changing, uncertain period of societal development. Politics in the 1960s and 1970s were marked by the

Some reflections on the relationship between television and theatre
Stephen Lacey

between the theatre of the late 1950s and 1960s and television drama of the 1960s and 1970s. I am particularly interested in how some of the key terms in the development of television drama (especially ‘Brechtian’ and ‘the popular’) might be illuminated when placed in the context of theatre theory and practice, and to pursue some connections between Joan Littlewood’s Theatre Workshop and popular television comedy. Both the theatre of the late 1950s and the television of the mid-1960s have been characterised in terms of their relationship to social realism (see Lacey

2 Labour’s organisational culture The purpose of this chapter is to establish the institutional context for Labour’s response to cultural change.1 It surveys the character of the party’s organisation and the nature of its membership on the verge of the 1960s, and in particular highlights the activities and assumptions of those most responsible for the party’s well-being. Before that can be done, however, it is necessary to outline Labour’s organisational structure and identify some of the issues to which it gave rise. The basic unit in all 618 constituency

on the inheritance of deafness worldwide. Covering the period from the 1930s to the 1960s, the school’s heredity research fell into a time of immense changes in eugenics, genetics, and genetic counselling. During this time, the coercive, state-driven, and biased eugenics of the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s grew into the modern medical genetics of the 1950s and 1960s, which, increasingly, emphasized individual autonomy. Historians have given much attention to the fraught, ritualized, and incomplete manner in which geneticists, physicians, biologists, or

reproduce the advertising techniques and styles of the parent company and in so doing assist them in delivering American standards of advertising and service for their clients, both American and local. This book explores the Anglo-American dimensions of the trans-Atlantic advertising relations in which Edward Wilson, and advertising people like him, participated during the 1950s and 1960s. These relations matter because they shaped the way that advertising agencies in Britain both understood and sought to give direction to an expanded consumer culture. The consolidation
