This five hour audio download from Audible Books covers Great Britain during the 1980s. It combines light narration with an abundance of old recordings (mostly interviews, news broadcasts, and speeches) into a quick historical overview of the decade. Loosely strung together by subject, not chronological order, the classic 80???s sound bites offer a colorful sample of past years on the other side of the pond. However, it lacked a serious assessment of the positive and negative effects of the major reforms and policy shifts during the ???Thatcher years,??? a somewhat stunning omission. The tendency of this work to favor the opinions of common football rioters, labor unionists, and left-wing demonstrators, over law enforcement, senior leaders, and historical analysts leaves it lacking depth and feeling rather myopic.
A complex view of Somali pirates was presented utilizing a combination of a news reports, statistics, interviews, and other research.
