Life in the 1970s [9781841655413]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
The 1970s are noted as the decade of strikes, the winter of discontent and the three-day week. But is this the full story; what was it really like for ordinary British people? In this book, Carol Harris looks at the stories and people who made the headlines - from Thatcher and David Bowie to Barbie and Ken - but also how ordinary people really lived at the time; how we worked and played, how we shopped, what we ate, wore, drove, watched and listened to. Britain went decimal and was introduced to the VHS player and the microwave, Gary Glitter and Elton John entertained us and fashion gave us punks, hippies and glam rockers all at once. This book will bring back memories for those who were there, and, for those who were not yet born, it will give them an idea of what the 70s were really like.
