Product Details


“No one else writes so clearly yet with such elegiac intensity about the symbiosis that exists between history and the built environment, or the lives that are caught, mangled and realised in its midst.” - Lynsey Hanley, author of Estates: An Intimate History

“Hatherley is a hugely knowledgeable and passionate advocate for architecture and planning, a cracking writer, and an undervalued figure of the left. For anyone daring to tackle social issues, Red Metropolis should be compulsory reading.” — Emma Dent Coad, Labour councillor for Golborne Ward and MP for Kensington, 2017-2019

“This book captures, like no other, the way London local government has been a tumultuous political battle ground and the breeding ground of radical political ideas and social movements. It stands as an excellent basis from which to launch the next wave of radical thinking about the future of the capital.” — John McDonnell, Deputy Leader and Chair of Finance of the Greater London Council, 1981-85, and Shadow Chancellor, 2015-2020
