When I was at primary school the teacher read us a book, which I realised was quite challenging for 10 and 11 year olds, outlining as it did a rebellion in a dystopian urban future.

She must have read it to us between 1978 and 1980 (given when I was at that school), probably 79-80 .

The government used Gas Bombs and Copters (possibly Choppers) to put down the rebellion.

Cars were electric, drawing power from under road cables. Some people removed the speed limiter.

TVs came with smell, the advert of a ?roast dinner? made the central character hungry.

Any ideas?

I'm stumped.

Did a Google and got pages of sites with lists, but not having read your book, there isn't enough to trigger an AHA! moment, though you might do better.

I remember a teen/YA book series set in a near future where the USA was taken over by way of a domestic military coup;series called "U.S.S.A." and it came out around the 1980's or '90's. Not sure about the one mentioned by you,L.H.. Good luck ,though.
