In photographs and words, this beautiful book rekindles memories of the 1960s in Australia: the Vietnam War and the conscription lottery; the Swinging Sixties, with its mini-skirts and changing fashions, the Beatles, Rolling Stones and The Seekers; the loss of a Prime Minister by drowning; the building of the iconic Opera House; the advent of decimal currency; Aboriginal recognition and the changing social patterns, sporting successes, and the new frontiers opened up by the mineral boom.
