An anthology book about true event in the 70s. 
 
THE BIG BOOK OF THE 70'S is a comprehensive and educational journey back to the most tumultuous and tacky decade of modern history. Using comic strips to revisit the "Me" Era, this entertaining cultural history text looks at the origins and emergence of such oddities as the pet rock, bell bottoms, mood rings, disco, streaking, and running.

A roller coaster ride through a time of extreme change and diversity, this book shows not only the fads and phenomena of the seventies but also how they have affected today's society.
