White Heat by Dominic Sandbrook

Book Description

Harold Wilson's famous reference to 'white heat' captured the optimistic spirit of a society in the midst of breathtaking change. From the gaudy pleasures of Swinging London to the tragic bloodshed in Northern Ireland, from the intrigues of Westminster to the drama of the World Cup, British life seemed to have taken on a dramatic new momentum. The memories, images and colourful personalities of those heady times still resonate today: mop-tops and mini-skirts, strikes and demonstrations, Carnaby Street and Kings Road, Harold Wilson and Edward Heath, Mary Quant and Jean Shrimpton, Enoch Powell and Mary Whitehouse, Marianne Faithfull and Mick Jagger. In this wonderfully rich and readable historical narrative, Dominic Sandbrook looks behind the myths of the Swinging Sixties to unearth the contradictions of a society caught between optimism and decline.

Seasons in the Sun by Dominic Sandbrook Seasons in the Sun, Paperback (February 2013)

The late 1970s were Britain's years of strife and the good life. They saw inflation, riots, the peak of trade union power - and also the birth of home computers, the rise of the ready meal and the triumph of a Grantham grocer's daughter who would change everything. This title is an account of the late 1970s in Britain.

State of Emergency by Dominic Sandbrook State of Emergency, Paperback (May 2011)

The early 1970s were the age of gloom and glam. Under Edward Heath, the optimism of the Sixties had become a distant memory. Now the headlines were dominated by social unrest, fuel shortages, unemployment and inflation. This book tells the history of the gaudy, schizophrenic atmosphere of the early Seventies.

American Thought and Culture in the 21st Century by Dominic Sandbrook American Thought and Culture in the 21st Century, Hardback (October 2008)

This volume considers the changing patterns of American thought and culture in its transition into the early 21st century.
