A New Kind of Bleak: Journeys through Urban Britain


Manufacturer: Verso Books

Product Information

This is what austerity looks like: a nation surviving on the results of what conservatives privately call 'the progressive nonsense' of the Big Society agenda.

In a journey that begins and ends in the capital, but takes in Belfast, Aberdeen, Plymouth and Brighton, author Owen Hatherley explores modern Britain’s urban landscape and finds a short-sighted disarray of empty buildings, malls and glass towers. Yet while A New Kind of Bleak anatomizes 'broken Britain', Hatherley also looks to a hopeful future and discovers fragments of what it might look like.
Illustrated by Laura Oldfield Ford, author and artist of Savage Messiah. Paperback, Verso, 2013.
