Reviews

  • A scathing, lively and timely look at the "European city", from one of our most provocative voices on culture and architecture today

    Owen Jones
  • 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.

    Anna Minton
  • The latest heir to Ruskin.
