Captivating finale to an excellent series,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seasons in the Sun: The Battle for Britain, 1974-1979 (Hardcover)I fell on the first in the series on social/political in postwar Britain by Dominic Sandbrook a few years ago almost by accident and found that it was possible to open the book at any page at random and immediately be absorbed by the text. This has continued throughout the four volumes. This latest, which covers the second half of what was one of the most exiting post WW2 decades is for me, as someone who was politically aware and peripherally involved, a balanced and fair narrative of how things were in the second half of the seventies. There is also much new information for this reviewer though I would baulk at the notion that life was that grim: it really wasn't - but there was a realisation that Britain had declined relatively but that somehow we would continue to bumble along. The problems pale in retrospect compared with the present. Highly entertaining.
