About this book
A snapshot of Britain in the late 1950s and early 1960s, published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Profumo Affair. Davenport-Hines introduces the key players and brings seedily glamorous swinging London to life, as well as the tabloid hacks, property developers and hangers-on whose roles, until now, have never been fully revealed. 'A wonderful evocation of the period' David Kynaston
The inspiration behind Andrew Lloyd Webber's new musical 'Stephen Ward', the secrets of the Profumo affair are exposed in this sharp-focused snapshot of a nation on the brink of social revolution.
