About this book
To mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, this book ties in with a BBC Radio 4 series in which Naughtie takes a look at the lives of 60 prominent people who have helped define the era of her reign. With appeal to fans of Neil McGregor's "A History Of The World In 100 Objects", the 60 have been decided by listener nominations and a panel of historians. It amounts to a major portrait of the post-war period, highlighting the significant figures of British life.
The official tie-in to the landmark new series on Radio 4, written and presented by one of the UK's leading commentators on social and political life - Jim Naughtie.
