This series of small, thick bricks of books is entirely photographic. You get the flavour of the times without the waffle!

If you want a quick review of the 1970's, then pick up this book, filled with black/white photos of the era and short descriptions it is a nice way to look back at this time in history. While going through this book, I realized that a lot of the issues we are dealing with today, oil spills, wars and such haven't changed in all those years. I guess humanity hasn't learn from their mistakes after all.

I was given this by a colleague several years ago. I had looked through it several times, but just now read the whole thing cover to cover.

It is decidedly British. Pop culture of the 1970s would certainly include Evil Knievel. Not here.

Nevertheless, this is a pretty good overview of word events in the 1970s. The reader is reminded that modern-day terrorism began during that decade.

And I hold to my long held contention that no one looked good in 1970s-era fashion. :)
