Product Information

 Second part of David Douglass's autobiographical 'Stardust and Coaldust' trilogy, dealing with the period from the end of the 60s to the coming to power of Thatcher.

"David Douglass was a pitman for 40 years in the coalfields of the Tyne and South Yorkshire. This book is the second in his trilogy 'Stardust and Coaldust' and deals with the period from the end of the 60s to the coming to power of Thatcher. In this stormy 15 year period dramatic events are taking place around the globe. In industrial Europe the working class challenged capitalism and the state, while Britain experienced industrial unrest unseen since the General Strike. The National Union of Mineworkers stormed back from obscurity to face down a government. Rock and Roll is king, sexual freedom is breaking down all inhibitions, all boundaries are being challenged, the wildcat and sex kitten are loose on the street and the fur is flying. David takes us back to a time conventional histories have ignored or glossed over. It is political and social history told by a participant in the events, and contains insightful cameos of pit work and the recent untold history of the Miners' Union. The sex scenes aren't bad either."
