Britain in the 1970s and wider contexts

It is always best to be able to put 1970s phenomena in wider contexts. In the exam, without giving a detailed chronology of a subject such as Ireland, trade union legislation, immigration laws, racist violence or feminist activity, a clear sign that you know what went before and what came after is extremely valuable (expecially what came after, which is generally ignored by candidates). Here then is some (mostly later) context for two themes.

Legislation against trade union activity 


Popular music as an expression of immigrant identity

key words : Le Royaume-Uni à l'épreuve de la crise, Britain in the 1970s, agrégation.
