A Guide to the New Ruins of Great Britain


Manufacturer: Verso Books

Product Information

"Before the crash, British cities were laboratories of the new enterprise economy—glowing monuments to finance, property speculation, and the service industry. Then reality rudely intruded. In A Guide to the New Ruins of Great Britain, Owen Hatherley sets out to explore the wreckage, mapping the derelict Britain of the 2010s and the buildings that epitomized an age of greed and aspiration. Scathing, forenseic, bleakly humorous, A Guide to the New Ruins of Great Britain is a coruscating autopsy of a get-rich-quick, aspirational politics, a brilliant, architectural 'state we're in'."

Paperback edition, Verso 2011.
