Author: Richard Davenport-Hines

Britain in the late 1950s and early 1960s was still a highly regimented society. But social forces simmered underneath and the Profumo Affair - the involvement of Britain's Secretary of State for War with a call girl who was also the mistress of a Soviet spy - brought them seething to the surface. Here is a tale of sex, drugs, the English class system, and the birth of Swinging London. (pb)
