Book review: John Charlton, 2009, Don’t you hear the H-Bomb’s thunder?
Youth and politics on Tyneside in the late ‘fifties and early
‘sixties. Pontypool: North East Labour History.
Interface: a journal for and about social movements, 2 (2).
Don’t you hear the H-Bomb’s thunder? is a lively, clearly-written account of one of
the regional experiences that made up the first British New Left: direct action
campaigns against nuclear weapons, the first stirrings of counter-cultural revolt,
and the rise of left politics outside the framework defined by the Labour and
Communist parties. A participant himself, socialist historian John Charlton carried
out extensive interviews with others from the period and woven their narratives
into a coherent and always interesting study of wie es eigentlich gewesen.
