Book; Born in 1962? What else happened? - Ron Williams
This product is currently sold out.
This is a series of books about life in Australia – one for each year from 1939. They describe happenings that affected people, real people. The whole series, to coin a modern phrase, is designed to push your buttons, to make you remember and wonder at things forgotten.
The books might just let nostalgia see the light of day, so that oldies and youngies will talk about the past and re-discover a heritage otherwise forgotten. Hopefully, they will spark discussions between generations, and foster the asking and answering of questions that should not remain unanswered.
In 1962, the Pill was helping to change attitudes to birth control and women’s roles, our Joan was recognised on the world stage, tensions with Indonesia over West Irian and Cold War incidents such as the Cuba crisis intensified fears of ‘Reds under the Beds’.
