State of Emergency
Under Edward Heath, the optimism of the Sixties had become a distant memory. Now the headlines were dominated by strikes and blackouts, unemployment and inflation. As the world looked on in horrified fascination, Britain seemed to be tearing itself apart.
Seasons in the Sun
In the mid-1970s, Britain's fortunes seemed to have reached their lowest point since the Blitz. These years saw the peak of trade union power and the apogee of an old working-class Britain. In this book, the author recreates this extraordinary period in all its chaos and contradiction, revealing it as a decisive point in our recent history.
