British history from 1945 to 1990 divides into two distinct sub-periods.  From 1945 to the mid 1970s there was a degree of policy consensus between the two principal political parties, though we will discuss whether this has at times been over-stated.  From the mid 1970s there was a clear policy choice for the electorate with significant continuing implications for our world today.  Our approach will be thematic.  For each of the sub-periods we will examine in turn the principal political, diplomatic, economic and social events and changes.
