This book, written by Peter York, the author of the Sloane Ranger Handbook, is based on a series of articles he wrote for Harpers & Queen, the UK glossy magazine, observing the social and cultural scene of the 1970s. It’s a good antidote to the picture most people have of Britain during the decade, of a country inexorably going to the dogs. York paints a picture of a Britain, or at least a London, where cool people in architecture, fashion and pop music were having a great time and where money was not a problem.
