This review is from: The Seventies Unplugged: A Kaleidoscopic Look at a Violent Decade (Paperback)
loved the whole idea of this book - as someone who didn't study modern history at school it was a great way to catch up with all the events I vaguely remember from childhood - each section is so bitesized that you can digest it easily and it doesn't matter if it isn't something you care that much about - you are soon on to the next nugget of information on or about something or somewhere else. finally, how interesting (and possibly sad?) that so much of recent bistory, wars in particular, just repeats itself. old hatreds die so hard and we make the same mistaknse again and again as a civilisation. and all the horrors of today we think are new and terrible seem to have all happened before. great reading for adults, but would also be really useful for students as well.
