About this product
- DescriptionThe 1960s have gone down in history as the swinging sixties; when the permissive society swept the country in a haze of mini-skirts, psychedelic posters, pop festivals and 'love-ins'. But what was it really like for ordinary British people? In this book, Mike Brown looks at some of the major aspects of living in Britain at the time; how we lived, worked and played, how we shopped, what we ate, wore, drove, watched and listened to. He looks at the stories and people who made the headlines; the mods and rockers, the 'beautiful people', but most of all, how ordinary people really lived and reacted to events such as the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Great Train robbery, and the first moon landing. The book will bring back memories for those who were there, and, for those who were t yet born, it will give them an idea of what the 60s were really like.
- Author BiographyMike Brown is an author, broadcaster, and authority on the fashions of the 40s and 50s. His books include The 1940s Look, The Ration Diet Book, and A Wartime Christmas.
