Summary:

George Galloway is one of Britain's most controversial public figures. The 1970s is one of Britain's most controversial decades. Put them together and you get... Street Fighting!



George Galloway was born into poverty in a slum Irish immigrant quarter of the Scottish city of Dundee. He began the 1970s running wild in a gang - the Lochee Fleet - and ended the decade, as most people said, running the city itself. In subsequent decades he would rarely be out of the news but this personal memoir of the 1970s goes back to where he started.



Shocking from the start, Galloway's memoir interlaces his own young life into the most turbulent decade in British history, film, music, football, strikes, war in Ireland indeed war throughout the world. To understand the 1970s is to understand George Galloway. And vice versa.



Galloway is already writing the sequel to this volume: The Thatcher Years of the 1980s which he describes as Britain's hangover, a hangover so bad, that Britain almost died

George Galloway; like him or loath him. You'd be lying if you said he wasn't interesting. And you know it.

    Audiobooks.com has this title while others don't. As a huge fan of George Galloway, I was so pleased to get access to this book. The book takes the listener through Galloway's youth, providing details regarding his, family, his achievements, and some indiscretions. The book also provided insight into Galloway's entry into politics both British and international. While the book's content and style were brilliant, the best part was of course Galloway's voice! I hope the next volume is released very soon.
