Here is what Mike said about Julian Lovelock in a review of his review.
"In recent times, mainly since the nineteen-seventies, Ransome’s books have been, unfortunately, dismissed by some as being very middle class and portraying a best forgotten world that ceased to exist many years ago and so having no relevance to children anymore."
Was being "middle class" a crime?
Had society by the 1970s lost the chance or the will for adventure? Possibly yes, when, as I've said, my brother and I were very nearly in the 1950s, doing S&A things sailing on mudflats almost like Secret Waters.
