The Cautious Revolution: Britain Today and Tomorrow

By Ernest Watkins | Go to book overview

FOREWORD

The intention of this book is clear enough, to give a dispassionate account--dispassionate, that is, to the extent that one man can be dispassionate--of events in Britain between July, 1945, and February, 1950, and beyond, with a sufficient factual background to support the story. The reality in what follows may be quite different. Certainly, I am uneasily conscious of subjects left out- education, for instance--that should have been included. Equally, I am aware that the reader may not stop short at complaining of the sins of omission. But there it is. I can say that it is an honest attempt. And I must say that the mistakes--in fact the whole book --is no one's responsibility but mine.

That is not true of the work in it. I am deeply grateful for the help I have received from so many people, from Mrs. Margaret Atkinson and Miss Molly Drury, who acted as secretaries at various times; from individual members of the staffs of the Economist and the B.B.C.'s News Information Service, who aided me with research; from the editor of the Economist, who permitted me to incorporate some material I had written for him; and above all, I am grateful both for the help and for the forebearance of my wife, who had to put up with a very great deal while this book was in preparation.
