Format: Paperback
The book 'Different Times' is, I believe, one of the most important books for our time. It indicates the crucial importance of what the book calls "Neighbourly Communities" in creating the foundations of an orderly society.
Moreover, by comparing the attitudes, values and beliefs of the past with those of the present, it should make the present period think carefully about the "usefulness" of many of the attitudes it now holds.
As the book states: only by understanding the past can we understand the present and know where we ought to be going.
On the entertaining side: the descriptions of the games that children played before the age of "sit and watch" television is a sheer delight

I agree with the first-listed review.

Also, I listened to Prime Minister Blair's recent speech about the difficulties concerning law and order in the present age. The book has a lot to say on this subject and the Prime Minister should order a copy.

An excellent book covering the communities formed in industrial Manchester in the early part of the 20th century. Of particular interest was its chapters on how children played in the streets, and also the remarkably low crime rate of that period. Every sociologist, politician and decision maker should keep a copy on their desk.
