Bloomsbury Circus, Bloomsbury Publishing


Bracing and radical account of how the few wield power over the many, principally because of the swathes of land they have accrued in the UK. Half polemic, half hands-on exploration of often very beautiful, semi-forbidden, walled-off places, this is a persuasive, stirring and stylish book.
