Polly Toynbee: An Uneasy Inheritance: An Uneasy Inheritance: My Family and Other Radicals

Esteemed Guardian columnist and social commentator Polly Toynbee scrutinises her own remarkable family to consider class mobility.

While for generations her ancestors have been committed left-wing rabble rousers, railing against injustice, they could never claim to be working class; settling instead for the prosperous life of academia or journalism.

By examining her own family, which includes her writer father, Philip, and her historian grandfather, Arnold as well as everyone from the Glenconners to Jessica Mitford to Bertrand Russell, Polly explores the myth of mobility, the guilt of privilege, and asks for a truly honest conversation about class in Britain.
