In 1961, with the Cold War at freezing point, a beautiful nineteen-year-old girl had an affair with the Secretary of State for War, John Profumo. She also had sex with a Russian spy. When the political time bomb exploded two years later, Britain's last grandee Government, that of Harold Macmillan, collapsed. But the social legacy was even more potent than the political one. As hemlines went up in the Sixties, inhibitions came down." "Christine Keeler's name is as synonymous with the sexual revolution as the Pill. She was the epicenter of the social and political earthquake that shook the world, but what she can now tell with mature insight will shatter all preconceptions about her and the legendary events. The author died in 2017.
