This work explores the essential ideas and assumptions of three very different cultural developments in post-World War II Britain: the fantasy literature of C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien and the response it provoked; the protests that emerged in the late 1950s against Britain's possession of nuclear weapons; and the early Green movement of the 1960s and 1970s. It shows that these three products of middle-class culture should be placed within the British intellectual and cultural tradition of romantic protest against industrialised society.

Book Description:

This work explores the ideas and assumptions of three very different cultural developments in post-war Britain: the response to the fantasy literature of Lewis and Tolkien, protests against nuclear weapons, and the early Green movement. It places these products of middle-class culture within the British intellectual and cultural tradition of romantic protest against industrialised society.

Review:

'This is a clever book, well written, thoughtfully presented and subtly connected. In each of the three areas of primary analysis there is work of authority and scholarship.' Nature
