London and the Making of the Permissive Society

How did sexuality transform post-war Britain? Frank Mort's book, Capital Affairs shows how a new phase of post-war Victorian morality was forged by the dramatic cultures of austerity and affluence that marked London life,

During the 1950s a series of spectacular scandals profoundly disturbed London in ways that had major consequences. Upper-class intrigues, macabre serial killings, and homosexual affairs exposed pleasure and danger at the heart of the metropolis. High and low society collided in a world of social and sexual extremes. Patrician men-about-town, young independent women, go-ahead entrepreneurs, Westminster politicians, homosexual men and West Indian newcomers were centre stage in encounters that reshaped public and private behaviour.
