The 1980s are noted for the fall of the Berlin Wall and the rise of the yuppie; when technological advancements started to dominate our lives and lycra our fashion sense. But what was it really like for ordinary British people?
In this book, Brian Williams 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; but most of all, how ordinary people really lived and reacted to events such as the end of the Cold War, the Falklands War, and the wedding of Charles and Diana.
The book will bring back memories for those who were there, and, for those who were not yet born, it will give them an idea of what the 80s were really like.
