Rationing, Controls, and Consumption, 1939-1955


'this is persuasive, and will have a large impact on discussion of post-1945 politics... an impressive and important book.' -Philip Williamson, English Historical Review
'In view of its importance, the austerity regime has not attracted the academic study it deserves, and this scholarly and thoroughly researched book by Ina Zweiniger-Bargielowska will, therefore, be widely welcomed. She challenges received opinion in several ways and has much of interest to say for students of war, British administration, women and party-political history.' -Martin Pugh, Times Literary Supplement
'At last we have a full history. Austerity in Britain is required reading for anyone who thinks that utility furniture and pencil-line stockings say it all.' -Richard Overy, The Sunday TelegraphAusterity in Britain is the first book to explore the entire episode of rationing, austerity, and fair shares from 1939 until 1955. These policies were central to the British war effort and to post-war reconstruction. The book analyses the connections between government policy, consumption, gender, and party politics during and after the Second World War.
