Product description

Review

'Big hair, big money, big polictics: an entertaining guide to Thatcher's decade.' -- 'Must Read', Culture, The Sunday Times

'Dazzling overview of a demonised decade.' -- Mojo

'...Alwyn Turner's breathless romp through the 1980s overflows with unusual juxtapositions and surprising insights.' -- Culture, The Sunday Times

Alywn Turner has followed up Crisis? What Crisis? his acclaimed history of the 1970s with a witty, informed look at what came after.
-- Hamstead and Highgate Express

I also loved Alwyn Turner's splendid Rejoice! Rejoice! Britain in the 1980s... -- Dominic Sandbrook, New Statesman, November 2010

Readers of his book about the 1970s, Crisis? What Crisis?, will know of his talent for interpreting the politics of an epoch through its popular culture. -- Financial Times, November, 2010

This kaleidoscopic history...provides a vivid and enjoyable guide to these turbulent years. -- BBC History Magazine, August 2010

Turner has produced a masterly mix of shrewd analysis, historical detail and telling quotes....Indispensible.

***** -- Mail on Sunday, June, 2010

Among a host of recent books on the 1980s, Turner's stands out as comfortably the most entertaining.
-- The Sunday Times: Books of the Year
