A history of the 1980s. At the start of the 1980s, smallpox is eliminated, US Cruise missiles are based at Greenham Common, and John Lennon is shot dead. By the end of the 1980s the Cold War ends, the hole in the ozone layer is linked to CFCs, and satellite TV starts. The book contains a month-by-month review of the key changes and events of the 1980s. 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 1980s was really like.
