You two have come up with an innovative way to turn research for a dissertation which is often read by a few into a book that will reach many.
The issues the book has raised, of course, are not limited in this case or North London. Mega structures like sports stadiums and mega events like the Olympic Games and World Expo all have complicated impact on urban life. Grass roots movements, citizen participation in the decision-making process and resistance (think the right to the city), all very important indeed.

Have been looking through this book. Really accessible and easy to follow. Tells a very complicated story very clearly. A must read about how regeneration works these days.

My copy of Tottenham's Trojan Horse has arrived. It chronicles the dispute over the regeneration project linked to the new #THFC stadium. It's as good as I hoped. Features Dave Morris, Claire Kober and various other key Haringey figures. Congrats to @AJLillywhite and @MarkLPanton
