    Big Up

    Classy book that in parts shows exactly how families were in the fifties t includes interviews and case studies to backup the vies of the author it also shows how strong the family bond was back in the fifries and how families always stuck together, most were structured as extented families in those days and the son in law was regarded as a son and vice versa for the Daughter in law. Excellent study and put forward brilliantly by Young and Willmott
