Another good way to learn about a decade is through its movies. The 70's -- the end of Vietnam War and the beginning of Cold War -- is the decade of the skeptical. From the controversial "A Clockwork Orange" and "Harold and Maude" to the box office "Jaws" and "Star Wars", this 776 pages of full color book will give you a better understanding of the restless decade, and while at that, getting a sight-orgasm by the dramatic pictures.

short introduction about the seventies movies and cinematic themes , then a series essays about some of the important films of this decade , the essays vary in quality but mostly informative . the book itself is wonderfully designed with lots of photos from films used .

overall , this book is more of a shelf book , more valuable in collecting , keeping and representing .
