Forty years ago, London was an ailing post-industrial city that had seen better days. Today, it's the cultural and financial capital of the world. How did that happen? And who made it happen? London Calling has the answers. It tells the story of the rebirth of the capital since 1968, covering every aspect of London life, from architecture to art, fashion to food, clubbing to the counter-culture, music to morals. Lavishly illustrated with new and historic photographs, it includes essays by leading writers and critics; reminiscences from key artists, writers, musicians and politicians; timelines charting significant events; and original material from Time Out magazine's unique archives of words and pictures. From Tony Elliott snuggling up with John and Yoko to Bowie at Hammersmith Odeon in '73; the Brixton riots to crashing stock markets; the rise of the Tate and Borough market and through two summers of love - if you want to know how we got to now, this is the book.
