Rich in detailReviewed in the United States on 28 July 2017
Amazing history that is rich in detail. If I could give more stars, I would. My only complaint (which has nothing to do with the author) is that there's not a lot of detail about the 50s in terms of bars and nightclub, particularly compared to the earlier chapters. I suspect that's because the data isn't there to be reported on. As an American, I was surprised to see that Australia had as much of a red scare (and attendant pink scare) in the 50s as the U.S. did.
