The 1970s were a time of disco, U.S. relief at the end of the Vietnam conflict, and celebration of America's bicentennial. The passage of the groundbreaking Title IX act saw women's sports on the rise as more funding became federally mandated, Bruce Jenner became known as the "World's Greatest Athlete" with his remarkable gold medal at the 1976 Olympics, and Reggie Jackson batted in three consecutive home runs to clinch a Yankee win in the 1977 World Series. 1970–1979, Second Edition relates vivid accounts of these sports achievements through engaging prose, colorful images, and handy reference features.
