Who Dares Wins: Britain, 1 19 79-1982

By Dominic Sandbrook

A Allen Lane, £30, hardback, 928 pages

Having chronicled Britain’s story from 1956 to 1979, historian Dominic Sandbrook here turns his attention to a pivotal period: the dawn of the 1980s and the rise of Margaret Tatcher. Britain’s first female prime minister is obviously a defining presence, but Sandbrook is just as eager to sketch the ways in which the cultural and economic changes often had their origins elsewhere in society. Mixing politics with pop music and class rivalries with international conflict, this is a dynamic exploration of an era whose events still have much to tell us about the world of 2019.

About BBC History Revealed Magazine

In AD 79, Pompeii was wiped out by a huge volcanic eruption that buried it beneath a thick carpet of ash and debris. We look back at fateful day – the day an entire Roman city died – and find out how the ruins offer us a glimpse into the lives of everyday Romans. Plus: Globetrotter Marco Polo meets Mongol warlord Kublai Khan; how the Night of the Long Knives made Hitler untouchable; inside the Victorian freak show; and all you need to know to survive an Edwardian dinner party
