SEVENTIES:
The Sights, Sounds and Ideas of a Brilliant Decade

'Sounes' book is a thoroughly enjoyable read.' Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times

Introduction

Seventies is a sweeping history of the arts in the 1970s. Over the course of 28 chronological and interlinked chapters, author Howard Sounes sets out to show that the maligned 'decade that taste forgot' gave us literature, films, music, television, art and architecture of enormous significance, work that was exciting in its day, and still enriches the world.

Sounes focuses on some of the outstanding creative artists of the 1970s - including David Bowie, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Richard Rogers, Francis Ford Coppola, the Sex Pistols and David Hockney - telling their personal stories and how they came to make their iconic work.

Seventies: The Sights, Sounds and Ideas of a Brilliant Decade was first published in hardback in the UK by Simon & Schuster in summer 2006 (ISBN: 0-7432-6859-8), and is available as a Pocket Books paperback.

Seventies has also been published in Italian by Laterza Editore.
