The 1980s Decade in Photos

The Triumph of Democracy

Series: Amazing Decades in Photos

By Jim Corrigan

America emerges from its malaise in the 1980s. Meanwhile severe social, economic, and military pressures force the Soviet Union to abandon its longstanding political doctrine. The U.S. stands alone as the world’s sole superpower. Through the good times there were also bad ones—the Space Shuttle CHALLENGER exploded and the worst nuclear power accident in history occurs at Chernobyl. Read more about the 1980s in this photo-driven book.

Children's Bookwatch, January 2010

"The mainly color photographs and illustrations drive the easy-to-read narrative . . . simple sentence structure works well for older students needing hi-lo resources."

Library Media Connection, March/April 2010

"Characterizing a decade in one slim book involves making choices--Corrigan generally does quite well at selecting nineteen significant events or developments for each decade since 1900."
