If you want to know how it all started... if you are interested in fashion/music back in the day...

 

Look no further...

 

Natural Born Skinhead - 1971 is the much requested prequel to the popular novels Something to Do - 1972 and Never a Dull Moment - 1973.  The Skinhead youths of the bleak housing estate must embody the spirit of ’69 when they face their rivals, or lose everything they value.  

With incidents of violent action, dark humour and shocking, graphic realism throughout, Natural Born Skinhead - 1971 tells it as it was.

 

Have read both books and this one is now on Amazon - which gives an explanation/insight into why it was the way it was (happy days... well sort of, the 70's - a violent time!)

Edit: Halfway through this book right now and it is EXCELLENT. For those interested in art, antiquities, and/or history I'd say this is a must-read.

Has anyone here ever attempted The Story of Civilization series by William Durant? Reading all 11 volumes seems like an impossible task but I was thinking of picking up Part IV: The Age of Faith, Constantine to Dante - A.D. 325-1300 as I am interested in that period.

I have them but haven't started reading. I may just do the audio version.
