Books Info:

The Seventies Unplugged free pdf 'We all disappeared', wrote the Sixties flower child Andrea Adam of her friends who once marched for peace and love. 'Suddenly...everybody had gone their own way. Suddenly everyone was knee-deep in mortgages and scrabbling for a half-decent job'. For too long, the accepted version of the Seventies has been one constructed by those embittered by the failures of the Sixties. The decade is seen as punishment for the propensity to dream. While we remember the best of the Sixties, we recall the worse of the Seventies. Now, Gerard DeGroot, author of the acclaimed "The Sixties Unplugged", turns his incisive and often iconoclastic eye on the 1970s and shows that the reality is somewhat different. Praise for "The Sixties Unplugged": 'What makes DeGroot's book special, though, is that he adds in so many unfamiliar parts of the story, and has such a wicked eye for damning quotes' - Andrew Marr, "Mail on Sunday".
