In many ways the decade of the 1970s was just as dramatic as the 1960s. America lost its first war, endured two energy crises, and a President resigned following an unprecedented political scandal. Television tackled once taboo subjects. Popular music enjoyed a multi-genre explosion, and there was a sexual revolution. Serial murder and other violent crime kept the nation on edge, and bombing, hijacking and the taking of hostages introduced the world to the modern face of terrorism.
The Seventies examines the individuals and events that influenced and shaped a decade that had as profound an impact on America as its famous predecessor.
