Nine wartime lives Mass-Observation and the making of the modern self by James Hinton ( )
7 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Nine Wartime Lives, James Hinton uses diaries kept by nine 'ordinary' people in wartime Britain to re-evaluate the social history of the Second World War, and to reflect on the twentieth-century making of the modern self. These diaries were written by some of the unusually self-reflective and public-spirited people who agreed to write intimate journals about their daily activity for the social research organisation, Mass Observation. One of the nine diarists discussed is Nella Last, whose published diaries have been a source of delight and fascination for many thousands of readers

This is a powerful, detailed, and warming story of World War II told through the previously unheard voices of those who described the home front for the "Mass Observation" project. Using diaries that have never been published before, this book tells the story of people falling in love, longing for a good meal, complaining about office colleagues, or mourning allotment potatoes destroyed by a bomb. --publisher
