The Cold War era that saw East and West clash in the hills and plains of Korea, a desperate bid for freedom by the people of Hungary, a brutal civil war in Algeria, the debacle of the Suez Crisis, and the frenzied arrival of Rock 'n' Roll. Here are the moments that shaped the 1950's. - The Fifties in Pictures is one of a series of books that together provide a comprehensive pictorial history of the 20th century, decade by decade. With over 250 pictures, this volume is a unique record of the moments that shaped the 1950s: from the French defeat in Indo-China to the Communist triump in Cuba, from racial desegragation in Little Rock to the grip of apartheid in South Africa, from Sugar Ray Robinson's pink Cadillac to the world's first jet liner.
