L3 Popular Culture

You should look at this blog every week, there will usually be something for you. From the quiz I saw that there was a need to know more about British history in general. I recommend the history books below

The People's Peace by Kenneth Morgan (Many cheap second-hand copies here)
Hope and Glory by Peter Clarke ( some cheapish second hand copies here )

Everyone need to read these, but if you are vaguely thinking of preparing a CAPES, it is essentialand urgent.

Otherwise, to revise Britain since 1945, here is an MP3 file of an introductory lecture I gave last year.

Just click here.

Finally, next week we will be beginning the history of British cinema, and at the start of class I will be asking you what is typical, if anything, of British cinema.
