Summary
"Conflict characterized the 1980's: war in the South Atlantic, the miner's strike, social unrest and political polarization. By 1981, unemployment had escalated dramatically and Margaret Thatcher's popularity had plummeted. But victory in the Falklands revived Tory fortunes, and Conservative hegemony was assured. The Northern Ireland situation remained insoluble: the IRA's Brighton bomb nearly wiped out Thatcher and her cabinet. But the decade included moments of celebration. Prince Charles married Lady Diana in 1981, and England won the Ashes. The Eighties ended up on a note of hope: in 1989 the Berlin Wall fell, and the Cold War was over. Bystanders, broadcasters and politicians describe history in the making."--Container
