Description

In London of the seventies, a dynamic counterculture blossomed against a backdrop of unemployment, racism, and IRA bombings. This volume, a collage of texts and images, provides an overview of the radical political and cultural developments of the decade. Photographs by Homer Sykes and others document the Grunwick strike, when Asian immigrants stood up to their bosses; the squatters' scene, with its approximately thirty thousand active members; and the new gay liberation movement. Derek Jarman shot his first Super-8 films and Peter Kennard created trenchant collages, while Stuart Brisley's performances and Jo Spence's photographs on the body and women caused a sensation. An essay by the well-known journalist Jon Savage sheds light on the meaning of the protest movement and counterculture of the period.
