A history of the 1970s. At the start of the 1970s, the electronic pocket calculator arrives, decimal currency is introduced, and the first women's liberation demo takes place in London. By the end of the decade Margaret Thatcher is Prime Minister, home computers start to appear, and Trevor Francis becomes Britain's first one-million pound football player. The book includes a month-by-month review of the key changes and events of the 1970s. 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 1970s was really like.
