  • "The decade that gave us the "yuppie" was all about big business, big government and big changes. The balance in global dominance shifted as the superpowers - China, the USSR, the U.S., and England - realigned and either asserted themselves or faded away. Our world changed forever during these fateful ten years, and this captivating two-disc set clarifies the major events - and major players - that shaped our globe."--Container.
