The 1970s Decade in Photos

Protest and Change

Series: Amazing Decades in Photos

By Jim Corrigan

The 1970s were a time of protest and change. Yet, they were happy times, too. The nation celebrated two hundred years of independence. Audiences enjoyed hit films such as STAR WARS and JAWS. People dressed in funky clothes. They danced to the beat of disco music. This photo-driven book with fast-paced text shows the 1970s as a decade of change.
