9780004723099: 1950s (Collins GEM)

A history of the 1950s, a decade which sees great changes - at the start of the 50s there is still petrol rationing, television is in its infancy, and there is war in Korea. By the end of the decade the space race is underway, with Russia launching Sputnik I in 1957, Harold Macmillan assures the country that "We've never had it so good", Elvis Presley is storming the world of music, and the Mini car is launched. The book includes a month-by-month review of key changes and events of the 1950s, and great emphasis is given to cultural and social landmarks to provide the real flavour of the period and to give insights into what life in the 1950s was really like.
