A classic portrait of Sixties Britain by one of the most brilliant commentators of the time.Bernard Levin is clever, cunning, savage and often brilliantly and cruelly witty few public events with disgraceful aspects escape his corrosive pen. The TimesFirst published in 1970, 'The Pendulum Years' argues that many of the striking features of the preceding decade stemmed from an underlying tension between the pull of the past and the pull of the future. Coruscating and often hilarious, it is an unparalleled examination of epochal times.It is brilliant. It is all true. A remarkable achievement, done in language that cries out to be read aloud and with a wit that even the victims may recognise. Economist
