Product Description

Review

A labour of love by an author enthralled by the societies and their members . . . highly agreeable book . . . cheering thesis (Independent)

A wonderful counterblast to the idea that we are becoming ever more lonely. Provocative and well-researched, Together offers a fascinating and very different way of seeing society today (Simon Jenkins)

A very valuable book, lively, instructive, original and full of interesting detail (Theodore Zeldin)

Henry Hemming is an inspirational writer (Liverpool Daily Post)

A non-political manifesto for Big Society (Lord Wei)

In likeable tones, with whimsical historical details and a range of philosophical and sociological references, Hemming tells numerous stories about the power of clubbing together, from the birth of the fans' football club FC United to "the creation of a new druid order" (no one knew who they were, or what they were doing), book groups, beekeepers' associations and the like (Guardian)

'Convincingly tears apart some "loneliness" statistics' (Guardian)

'Provocative and timely book' (Daily Mail)

Book Description

From druids to flash-mobbers, historical re-enactors to super-fans, Henry Hemming uncovers the extraordinary groups powering modern Britain

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jezza on 7 Oct 2012
Format: Paperback
Lots of references to other literature, which I always like in a popular science book - and some reasoned sensible critiques of some of the influential books in the area, including the 'broken Britain' stuff. Sort of three books in one - lots of anecdotal descriptive stuff about how many groups there are and how they work (which felt less than essential), a rather better account of what theorists say about groups, and a critique of New Labour ideas about 'community' which was very good and well worth reading.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By The Walker on 18 July 2011
Format: Hardcover
This is an extremely enjoyable book, well written and handled with considerable sensitivity. In a time of national doom and gloom, this is a splendid antidote and the passion and the sheer variety of the organisations who contributed comes shining through. It makes you proud to be British!
