Reviews

  • Magnificent ... if you lived through the late Seventies - or, for that matter, even if you didn't - don't miss this book.

  • Sandbrook has created a specific style of narrative history, blending high politics, social change and popular culture ... always readable and assured ... Anyone who genuinely believes we have never been so badly governed should read this splendid book.

    Stephen Robinson, Sunday Times
  • Nuanced ... Sandbrook has rummaged deep into the cultural life of the era to remind us how rich it was, from Bowie to Dennis Potter, Martin Amis to William Golding.

    Damian Whitworth, The Times
  • Sharply and fluently written ... entertaining ... By making you quite nostalgic for the present, Sandbrook has done a public service.
