About the Book
A celebration in photographs, poetry and prose of some of the historic moments of the last fifty years, their songs, dances, hopes and fears. From the great lyrics of the Beatles and Bob Marley, via the lively photojournalism of Robert Doisneau, thoughtful poets like Robert Frost and W.H.Auden through to contemporary writers like Imtiaz Dharker and Daljit Nagra, with a handful of political thinkers thrown in, the book examines some of the key ideas of the 20th century, their contradictions, strengths and weaknesses.
