  • Essential reading .... As attempts to address the crisis are still inadequate - indeed, some government policies are making it worse - and as it shows little sign of improving in the near future, the facts of this human catastrophe can't be stated too much or too strongly. The first achievement of Anna Minton's book Big Capital is to do just that

    Rowan Moore, Observer
  • Timely and relevant ... I can't recommend it enough

    Josie Long
  • Anna Minton goes digging into the housing crisis in London and beyond. She gives us an account that indicates the crisis was made through decisions and wilful distortions ... reads like a sort of murder mystery, fully exposed

    Saskia Sassen, author of Expulsions
  • Diligent and determined ... Eye-opening ... Minton builds a powerful case ... A call to imagine what is politically possible

    Richard Godwin, Evening Standard
  • Fierce, incisive, important. Anyone who lives or works in a building should read this book

    Will Self
  • A studied, sustained attack on a market that has been mishandled by successive governments for 40 years, not because politicians have been unable to remedy it but because it has been expedient not to. It makes for painful - yet compelling - reading

    Nathan Brooker, Financial Times
  • Powerfully written ... It's hard not to come away with a fresh sense of outrage

    Matthew Partridge, Moneyweek
  • Cutting through the jargon and spin [Minton] argues that housing is a human right, not purely a financial asset, and offers clear-sighted solutions

    Antonia Charlesworth, Big Issue
  • Big Capital adds to what must be a commitment to change. It lays out clearly that the struggle for space will be at the top of the agenda within large cities

    Lisa Mckenzie, Research Fellow in the Department of Sociology, London School of Economics
