The Fifties and Sixties: A Lifestyle Revolution is a beautifully illustrated book that provides a fresh and original perspective on the 1950s and '60s. It uses the intimate stories of those who lived through these momentous decades to reveal how our way of life was transformed, and explores the path from rationing to rock 'n' roll, military service to the mini-skirt, and the age of austerity to the Swinging Sixties. It reveals how post-war prosperity brought new homes, mod cons, more adventurous food and drink, motoring for the masses, daring new fashions, the Pill, the sexual revolution, pop music, and the rise of the teenage generation.
