Britain in the 1970s, an Annotated Timeline
Editeur : Starebooks (format Kindle)
From Callaghan to the Clash, from Grunwick to Rock against Racism, from Edward Heath to Britain’s string of Nobel Science prizes, this annotated timeline of the 1970s recounts the key events and the key statistics of the decade of feminism, the three day week and Monty Python.
Ideal as a reference or revision tool, the book covers well-known and forgotten-but-symbolic features of a period torn between continuing social progress and mass unemployment, a time which produces no consensus among those who study it, but which inspires respect and even awe.
Dozens of links to online resources- BBC videos, articles or sitcoms- make the work even more useful to help get to the truths behind the headlines.
