Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0737703083, Hardcover)

The 1970s was a decade marked by political scandal, the fight for womens' rights, and a nation in search of its identity after the turbulent '60s. This book explores what it was like to live during the "Me Decade," when fashions were loud, disco was king, and "Watergate" became a part of the national language.

Discusses four major events during the 1970s: Watergate and Nixon's resignation, the beginning of the environmental movement, the blockbuster movies of Spielberg and Lucas, and the popularity of punk and disco music.
