Well worth reading, let down a little by the lack of clarity at the beginning, but perhaps the author is just over familiar with this period as her previous work is the highly acclaimed "Stasiland". Two quotes which illustrate the authors eye for detail and craft of language: " ....... London was a place where the wind blew litter around red postboxes and the parks were under lock and key." And on the English. The manners ........ fenced off unassailable and pristine areas, like the parks."
