Books in 100 – All In It Together: England in the Early 21st Century

You would be forgiven for thinking that a historical analysis of the early 21st century is premature, but Alwyn Turner’s All In It Together provides a fascinating overview.

From the War on Terror to Brexit, Turner explores the narrative of 21st century England (strangely not the whole of Britain), focusing on the politics and culture of the first two decades of the millennium.

Much of Turner’s writing focuses on the New Labour era. His thesis on a time long since passed is excellent and hugely entertaining. As for the 2010s, there is a more explicit lack of analysis and detail; some stars from the cover are scarcely mentioned.

Overall, a solid first draft which can be doubled in length.
