In this groundbreaking new book, Mark Garnett charts the changes in British politics, society and culture since 1975. In the mid-1970s Britons spent much of their time complaining - and seemingly for good reason. A Labour government with a wafer-thin majority was struggling in vain against rampant inflation; the headlines were full of strikes, serial killers and sporting disasters; while in the streets anti-fascist demonstrators clashed with the racists of the National Front. Britain in the early years of the twenty-first century seems a very different and much quieter place, but is it as 'apathetic' as the political commentators argue? And were the 1970s really as 'angry' as people believed?
