UNDER PRESSURE: BRITAIN IN THE 1970s

Kevin Harrison, Martin R. Jervis, Andrew, Andrew Jones, Creina Mansfield, Steve Millward

In the aftermath of the riotous 1960s, History-Plus examines the significance of the next decade.  The 1970s was the decade of rejection – politically, with the resurgence of the far-right and the far left – culturally, with punk rock, terrible fashions and even worse hairstyles! Join us as we look back at ten tumultuous years.
