Synopsis

This book describes just what it was like to be a child during the 1980s. It was a time before people had smartphones, and the last decade before work, society and social life changed forever with the introduction of the internet in the 1990s. There were very few 3D games, no streaming services or other consumer goods that we take for granted nowadays. For a time, Kevin Keegan was the world's most famous footballer, and Donald Trump was just a glitzy property developer. A 1980s Childhood combines memories, original documents and photos from that time. It covers the holidays children were taken on, popular books and hobbies of the time, how children got around, the range of shops and consumer goods they knew, what school was like back then, and the roles of men and women in parenting in this era - which have changed to a surprising degree. Together, they give the whole story of what it was like to grow up in the 1980s - an era in living memory but already so different to today.
