Abstract:

"The seventies began with a spectacular obscenity trial and ended with Margaret Thatcher quoting St. Francis of Assisi on the steps of Downing Street. In the years between, the sixties social revolution settled into a variety of movements: feminist, gay, anarchist, punk. However, economic misery, burgeoning union power and carnage in Northern Ireland characterize the decade. The miners' strike and the three-day week toppled the Conservative Government in 1974, and the "Winter of Discontent" defeated Labour in 1979. The horrors in Norther Ireland were unremitting. But the Queen's Silver Jubilee and Virginia Wade's Wimbledon win provided moments of optimism. Politicians including Margaret Thatcher, Harold Wilson and Edward Heath illustrate the mood of the decade, as do journalists, social commentators and DJs."--Container.
