Top Customer Reviews
The fact is, as with his Phd thesis I read - this book concentrates too much on Manchester City Council and other politicians rather than what has actually set Manchester apart from its contemporaries over recent years. Its people. People like Ian Brown, Tony Wilson, Morrissey, Johnny Marr, John Squire, John Robb, Sean Rider, Martin Merchant and the guys behind rottingoffal.com.
They ignore the hige buzz in Manchester at the moment, To quote Brian Redheads wonderful book "ask anyone in Manchester what the second city in England is and they will answer... its a straight choice between London and Birmingham. Implicit in the answer is that Manchester is the first city in the land".
