From Library Journal
Individually, these beautifully reproduced photographs offer glimpses of those who inhabit this "groups of small islands," as the author describes her adopted country. The emphasis is decidedly upon the high and mighty, including the queen herself, and upon celebrities like Rex Harrison. However, photographs of a Jamaican refugee, a butler, and homeless people are also included. Taken as a whole, the book offers an interesting slice of British life during the 1960s and 1970s, and its strength is perhaps as a social document. Through a blend of candid and posed images, Arnold captures for all time the daily activities of both the notables and the unknowns who compose this nation. Appropriate for all library collections.
