About this book
A dynamic, relevant and exciting history of the 1970s. Includes vivid interviews with many of the leading participants, from Ted Heath to Jack Jones to Arthur Scargill; and also features the stories of forgotten political activists and actors.
The seventies encompass strikes that brought down governments, shock general election results, the rise of Margaret Thatcher and the fall of Edward Heath, the IMF crisis, the Winter of Discontent and the three-day week. This title goes in search of what really happened, what it felt like at the time, and where it was all leading.
