ANDREW Marr looks over the past 60 years and the political decisions that helped shape the country.

The book is enjoyable and although perhaps lacking an academic touch does give an understanding of an age which began in the days of austerity after the Second World War.

Marr as a skilled political correspondent is critical of the times and of those in power, but he explains, too, the reasons behind the decisions which helped shaped the country in our modern age.
