Product description


'Terrifically entertaining'

(Daily Telegraph)

‘Turner does an excellent job in synthesising the culture and art of the day into the wider political discourse. The result is resolutely entertaining’


‘Put[s] into cold perspective what at the time we were too befuddled with emotion to understand... Turner has produced a masterly mix of shrewd analysis, historical detail and telling quotes... Indispensable’

(James Delingpole Mail on Sunday)

'Dazzling... Turner’s account of the 1980s is as wide-ranging as that fractured, multi-faceted decade demands ... deft at picking out devilish details and damning quotes from history that is less recent than you think’

(Victoria Segal Mojo)

‘Among a host of recent books on the 1980s, Turner's stands out as comfortably the most entertaining’ - Books of the Year

(The Sunday Times)

‘One of the pleasures of Alwyn Turner’s breathless romp through the 1980s is that it overflows with unusual juxtapositions and surprising insights... The tone is that of a wildly enthusiastic guide leading us on a breakneck tour through politics, sport and culture’

(Dominic Sandbrook)

‘This kaleidoscopic history ... provides a vivid and enjoyable guide to these turbulent years. Ranging broadly across popular culture as well as high politics ... Turner brings the period alive and offers insights into both sides of a polarised nation’

(BBC History Magazine)

'Excellent ... this trilogy is about the most authoritative account of the late 20th century as you are likely to get'

(Choice Magazine)
