Living in the 70s - Being young in Australia in an extraordinary decade

Alison Pressley

Panel vans, platforms, protests, pills, sharpies and surfies, conscription and a cyclone, Gough and Gunston, Sherbet and Skyhooks, escaping the suburbs or leaving the city to go back to the land: the 70s in Australia had the lot. Life was bursting with possibility and whether you were a teenager in an Adelaide cul-de-sac or a rock star tearing up an inner-city pub, you couldn't help but feel the buzz.
Living in the 70s brings it all alive again through the voices of people who were there every cork-soled step of the way. In irresistible grabs, both funny and serious, it'll take you back in a flash to the fashion (it's not called 'the decade that taste forgot' for nothing, you know!), the music, the films, the politics and protests, to life in school and at work, in communes and in the parental lounge room. And let's not forget about the sex.

First published Australia 2002.
