it was amazing
Read in April, 2008

This fine book documents and explains how corporate interests and central government with the acquiescence of the urban middle class are taking the heart out of English life: pubs, independent shops, waterways, farms, urban public space, villages, orchards -- all fast vanishing forever. Everybody knows it is happening and people are bewildered by it. This book supplies the grim answers and suggests defence strategies. Globalisation is producing these effects worldwide and nowhere is immune from them. A timely book.
