Alwyn W Turner – Crisis? What Crisis?

Posted by demonik on June 28, 2008

Alwyn W Turner – Crisis? What Crisis? (Aurum, 2008)

From our friend Alwyn W Turner of Trash Fiction and Cult Rock Posters (Aurum, 2006) fame:

Crisis? What Crisis? Britain in the 1970s (Aurum, 2008).

Meticulously researched, this confident, engaging and well-argued history of the 1970s features dozens of original interviews with contemporary politicians, rock stars, actors, designers, as well as drawing on the books, films, sitcoms and media of the time. This is not an insider’s account of the crises that wracked Britain in that decade. Rather it is the consumer’s version, a world seen through the eyes of the mass media, in which Tony Benn, Mary Whitehouse and environmentalists jostle for space with David Bowie, Hilda Ogden and skinheads.

Alwyn writes: “If you’ve got the stomach for possibly the worst single ever made, there’s a trailer for the book here:

Crisis? What Crisis? video

Oh, that is exquisitely ghastly! Treat yourself!
