Publisher Description

Boomer tells the story of a generation born in the immediate aftermath of the Second World War and whose members, the Baby Boomers, are now in their mid to late seventies. It is a generation that has experienced more technological, social, and cultural changes than any other in history. The austerity and rationing of the boring grey fifties were followed by the sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll of the swinging sixties. After the endless industrial strife and international terrorist attacks of the seventies, and the sunny optimism of Reagan and Thatcher’s eighties, the Boomers finally took control in the nineties under Clinton and Blair. With the collapse of the Soviet Union and the promise of the emerging new technologies and social media, the baby Boomers were leading us to a truly brave new world. But sadly, the promise of a new century seems to have only brought us 9/11, AIDS, Covid, red v blue states, Brexit, MAGA and the Donald.


Boomer traces the decline and fall of the British Empire, the collapse of the Soviet Empire and the rise, if only temporary, of the American Empire. The world’s population has quadrupled since 1946 and where to place all those extra people is one of the greatest problems we face today. The book begins with the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and ends with the coronation of her son, King Charles III and examines how the monarchy can survive in the 21st century.


With the baby boomers retiring from the workforce and from public life, the book examines the world that the boomers are leaving behind for the next generation.
