The 1980s were a time of tumultuous transition in Britain. While the Cold War's endgame was played, the Thatcher government transformed the social landscape of the post-war consensus. This wide-ranging study tracks the development of a new generation of London novelists, the impact of feminism, working-class reactions to Thatcherism, Black British writing, the emergence of postmodernism, the rise of literary theory and the popularity of reflexive and self-conscious modes of writing. It ranges across the genres of fiction, poetry and drama, and sets these against the background of other cultural forms including television, film and music.
Joseph Brooker is Reader, Department of English and Humanities at the Birkbeck College, University of London.
