Step back in time and rediscover the events that took place in Australia and elsewhere during 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. The “Born In …” Series covers the period 1939-1968 (although not all years are released yet), each volume describes the happenings that affected people during that year. Apart from recording history, the compiler hopes that the books will spark discussions between older and younger generations.
Arranged chronologically by month, Ron Williams has made his way through newspapers, magazines and other sources and has come up with most of the major events that occurred during the year.
The “Born In …” books are a great way to learn about the social history of the era, and they are a fantastic gift idea.
