Product description

Review

'Beautifully elegiac… a memento mori of British civic pride lost to the shopping centres and ring roads of the 1960s… This masterful book should be placed in every council planning committee in the country’

(Tristram Hunt BBC History Magazine)

‘An engrossing, no-punches-pulled denunciation of the wilful destruction of our urban landscape since the 1930s’

(The Times)
