From the late-1930s until the mid-1980s, one of Britain's most prominent publishers, Penguin Books, produced a series of titles that examined the issues and events that were shaping the nation's political life. Referred to as 'Specials', these books were an important component of Britain's political climate that exerted a significant influence upon elite and popular attitudes. By interrogating the content of these works, and by tracing their reception among both political elites and their wider audience of readers, the following study explores the intellectual and electoral politics of post-war Britain.
