The 1980s, Paperback Book

The 1980s Paperback

Part of the Dates of a Decade series



The 1980s was a time of economic growth and great wealth for some.

It was the age of enterprise culture and the 'yuppie'.

Capitalism appeared triumphant as the communist world crumbled, and the Berlin Wall fell.

It was also the time of Live Aid, disaster at Chernobyl and the launch of the IBM PC.

This book describes these and many other world-changing events that occurred during this decade. Part of the series Dates of a Decade, each title looks at the key dates that helped shape history during a particular decade in the 20th century.

As well as describing landmark events, the books examine their causes and consequences and include contemporary newspaper reports and eyewitness accounts.
