Segal, Lynne (2013) Jam today: feminist impacts and transformations in the 1970s. In: Black, L. and Pemberton, H. and Thane, P. (eds.) Reassessing 1970s Britain. Manchester, UK: Manchester University Press. ISBN 9780719088148.
Book synopsis: This book examines a decade of extraordinary ferment in ideas, and the battles about those ideas out of which emerged the Britain of the late-twentieth century. In addressing the ideational contours of the decade, Reassessing 1970s Britain takes an innovative approach. It assembles a group of actors who were influential in generating and disseminating new ideas in the 1970s to reflect on key texts and arguments in which they were closely involved during that decade, and debate them with contemporary historians. It ranges over a wide field, encompassing politics, economics, women’s liberation, and popular culture. It also engages with the ways in which such ideas were disseminated to a wider audience. Reassessing 1970s Britain will be of interest to lecturers and students in a wide range of disciplines: modern British history, economic history, cultural history, social history, politics, gender studies, and cultural studies.
