    One thought on “Forbidden Britain”

    1. This was a good but harrowing read it about some taboo subjects such as child abuse homelessness youth crime etc. What makes this book so good is that personal memoirs are used to tell the story of each subject . It is a must read for anyone who has an interest in modern social history
