Washington Post 70's Decade Book - Gift Details

The Washington Post newspaper book uses reprinted coverage from DC’s flagship publication to create a fantastic reportage history of the key events throughout the 1970s.

After the furore of the 1960s, you could be forgiven for thinking the 1970s would be somewhat anticlimactic. Far from it. With the conflict in Vietnam rumbling on, American soldiers also found themselves in neighbouring Cambodia. And whereas the bloodshed in Vietnam finally came to an end in January 1973, it was by no means an end to the decade’s drama.

In June 1972, there was a break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate offices in DC. President Richard Nixon’s administration attempted to cover up its involvement. The subsequent Watergate scandal led to the eventual impeachment and resignation of Nixon in August 1974. As you’d expect, coverage of the drama’s final acts feature heavily in the book.

Later in the decade, newsworthy items included America celebrating its 200th birthday in 1976, Elvis Presley’s death at the age of 42 in August 1977, and Charlie Chaplin’s passing four months later at the age of 88. 1978’s transit strike is also featured, while one of the book’s last events is the concerted efforts to establish a framework for a peace settlement in the Middle East.
