  December 13, 2009 at 7:34 pm by

  September 19, 2009 at 5:43 am by

At first, the 1970′s seemed that it was going to be more of the same of the 1960′s…..opposition to the Vietnam War continued, and the threat of a nuclear war still existed. But more and more people were becoming disenchanted with their governments and the changes that the Free Decade of the 1960′s brought forth. During the 1970′s, many countries experienced an economic recession partly due to the oil embargos … Continue reading

The 1940s were again a difficult time. It was the decade which would influence the future of the entire world.

  April 7, 2009 at 8:56 pm by

Following the turbulent events of the previous decade (wars, major health epidemics and the fall of many royal empires), the 1920′s were welcomed with a sigh of relief. This decade saw great technological advances (first trans-Atlantic flight, the creation of the talking movie), the relaxation of some social norms (flappers!) and widespread economic prosperity in many nations. The 1920′s also experienced the rise of fascism in Europe. But it couldn’t … Continue reading
