This is an auction for STRANGE DAYS INDEED: THE GOLDEN AGE OF PARANOIA by Franics Wheen. review:

"FIVE STARS!!! A very lucid account of a relatively neglected decade that is funny and frightening in equal measure. In addition to its coverage of the 70s, the book also acts as something of a keystone for how a lot of popular thinking on conspiracies and the like has developed in the subsequent decades. In general,I did like the juxtaposition of what was happening in the US with similar developments in the UK and Europe and much of the material about the UK was, for me, new and fascinating. In particular the loopy shenanigans going on behind the curtains of the last Wilson administration and consequent rumblings of a potential right-wing coup. It gives a good overview of Nixon's disastrous final years and I think the benefit of having this discussed in parallel to other events around the world is that one can better see the global nature of political patterns, actions and thinking that was starting to take hold in the 70s."
