    I learned so much from this book I had known there was some kind of financial crisis in the 70s but I didn’t know the circumstances around it or any of the players This book is long but gives so much detail about the era I was so impressed that I ordered the rest of the series

    I could a tale unfold whose lightest word would harrow up thy soul freeze thy young blood and make thy two eyes like stars start from their spheres Actually I couldn’t but Dominic Sandbrook can; he has in Seasons in the Sun the Battle for Britain 1974 1979 the seuel to State of Emergency the Way We Were Britain 1970 1974I’m not uite sure how to describe this book hovering as it does between history and black comedy I found myself laugh

  3. says:

    I found this a slight disappointment after the truly excellent State of Emergency but I suppose that was to be expected partly because so much recapping was needed but also because I actually clearly remember the events covered so there were fewer surprises The other slighly irritating aspect of the book was the rather small number of sources used to add colour to the account Some added something such as Peter Hall's gradual disillusionme

    And so Dominic Sandbrook’s history of the sixties and seventies as well as a little bit of the fifties comes to an end Well I say that as it

    I've developed a serious addiction on Sandbrook's sprawling history of postwar Britain SEASONS IN THE SUN profits to this American non sports fan's mind by having little about soccer or cricket and lots about high ranking politicians plotting murders The Jeremy Thorpe scandal is amazing has that been turned into a movie? Could we get Hugh Laurie to star as Thorpe? Obviously the high point of the book is when T

    A mix of high politics laced with popular culture and sociologyThe 1960s was the decade in which the British public fell in love with the consumer society It was also the decade of the liberation of the individual Unfortunately people paid for these freedoms in the 1970s Drawing on a huge range of sources Sandbrook weaves an effective tale He

    While this is no doubt the authoritative book on the period is he being paid by the word ? Several anecdotes are repeated over and over it all seems to be about Wilson being uninterested and moribund as a leader Benn is little than a cartoon figure The Thorpe chapter though is a hoot I'd have liked social history and less politics That said there's not really a better writer for the era

    Update on finishing it I bumped my rating up a star because it did have some better points For example as I mentioned in the comments the section on Grunwick was well done But I still don't like his attitude and most especially the tiresome way that he draws heavily on Tony Benn's diaries yet can't resist making a snide comment every single time he mentions himI haven't finished this yet about halfway through but I'm reviewing

    Think of Britain in the mid to late 1970s and a number of grubby images are conjured up militant trade union intransigence republican and loyalist paramilitary terrorism currency crises angry punk rock revolting brown colour schemes It is an
