"The era that taste forgot..."

Famous for glam rock, flares and platform shoes, the 1970s also saw the emergence of new ideas, movements and trends that continue to influence our world today. From the Watergate Scandal to the growing feminist and LGBTQ+ movements, the rise of punk and disco, and the release of groundbreaking movies such as Star Wars and Jaws, it was a period marked by brave fashion and innovation, social change and cultural shifts.

Packed full of fabulous facts alongside fascinating quotes from the era's movers and shakers, this little book explores the key events, ideas and style that defined this pivotal decade.

"I don't think there will be a woman prime minister in my lifetime."
Margaret Thatcher, 1973.

"If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door."
Harvey Milk, a prominent LGBTQ+ rights campaigner who was assassinated in 1978.

The iconic Twin Towers – standing 415 metres feet in high and at the time the tallest buildings in the world – were added to the New York skyline in 1973.

The "Thrilla in Manila" – perhaps the most famous boxing match of all time in 1975 between Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali.

In April 1976, college dropouts Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak – or "the two Steves" – formed Apple Computer, Inc.
