KIRKUS REVIEW

Aldous, a London Times reporter, grimly documents the spread of high-rise apartments, shopping ""precincts,"" anonymous glass-and-concrete slabs, and wrecking crews through English cities large and small--from Bristol and Bath to a London fast passing into senseless chaos. As for the countryside, much of it is at the mercy of agribusiness, large mining companies, ""highwaymen,"" and waves of outwardly mobile urbanites. The 60 black-and-white illustrations tell all too much of this painful story.
