[BOOKS] Seasons in the Sun

"In the mid-1970s, Britain’s fortunes seemed to have reached their lowest point since the Blitz. As inflation rocketed, the pound collapsed and car bombs exploded across London, as Harold Wilson consoled himself with the brandy bottle, the Treasury went cap in hand to the IMF and the Sex Pistols stormed their way to notoriety, it seemed that the game was up for an exhausted nation. But what was life really like behind the headlines?"Seasons in the Sun: The Battle for Britain – 1974 -1979 by Dominic Sandbrook covers a privotal moment in Britain's history with societal unrest and the rise of the punk movement.
