Summary note
"Those years were the calm after the storm of war and before the hurricane that blew away so much that was once taken for granted: males supremacy, monogamy, virtuous virginity, church-going in those days more people went ot church than to football matches, even meals that consisted of meat and two veg. The transformation that began during the 1960's has been quite as drastic as if there had been a revolution, which, but for the fact that I was social not political, there was. We can say, as people said in the seventeenth century after civil war, The world turned upside down."--back cover.
