  • The best book I've read on Europe, blending history, architecture and contemporary politics and written in Owen Hatherley's trademark mixture of scepticism, erudition and humanity. He is a writer of lasting merit who will be read fifty years from now.

  • The latest heir to Ruskin.

    Boyd Tonkin, Independent
  • Praise for Landscapes of Communism: 'A revelatory voyage into fantastical domains...It is an epic work'

    Jonathan Meades
  • I loved it, and I'll go back to it again and again

    Philip Pullman
