Were you born in 1959? Do you remember what happened during the year? Born in 1959 is one in a series of year-by-year books that highlight the social history happenings in Australia at that time. 

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. Each volume in this series describes the happenings that affected people, and is designed to make you remember and wonder at things forgotten. And also designed to get the oldies and youngies talking about the past and rediscover heritage that otherwise would be forgotten. 

In 1959 Billy Graham called us to God. Perverts are becoming gay. The Kingsgrove Slasher was getting blanket press coverage. Tea, not coffee, was still the housewifes friend. Clergy were betting against the opening of TABs. Errol, a Tasmanian devil, died. So too did Jack Davey. There are three ways to kill a snake. Aromarama is coming to your cinema .
