The famous historian of modern Britain, Dominic Sandbrook tells the story of the first years of the 1980: the most dramatic, colourful and controversial years of our recent history. Margaret Thatcher came to power in 1979, with a bold plan to reverse Britain’s decline into neglect and chaos. But as the factories have closed down, dole queues lengthened and the inner cities exploded in flames, would his radical medicine to save the Sick man of Europe – or kill off? Lively, surprising and gloriously funny, Dominic Sandbrook’s new book recreates the decisive turning point in Britain’s recent history. For some people this was an era of unprecedented opportunity, the period of maximum splendor of computer, and credit cards, billiards, Sloane Rangers and Spandau Ballet. But for others it was a time of shocking grief, as industries collapsed, working-class community of sandalwood and the Labour Party tore itself apart. And when the Argentine forces seized the Falkland Islands, it seemed the ultimate humiliation for a wounded, unhappy country, his fortune, standing on a knife blade. Here’s the early 1980’s in all their gaudy glory. This is the story of Tony Benn, Ian Botham and Princess Diana, Joy Division, Chariots of Fire, the Austin Metro and Juliet, Bravo; wine bar, Cruise missiles, Spectrum ZX, and the battle for the Falklands. And towering above all, the most disruptive, the Prime Minister of the modern era – the Iron Lady.
