"A superb work of research and is clearly and entertainingly written, sometimes intimidating in its attention to detail, but rarely dry" Daily Telegraph "A far-reaching, in-depth yet broadly-based history of London ... You don't have to be a Londoner to enjoy this heroic tale of people - and bricks and train-tracks triumphing to the detriment of green space" Independent "Barratt brilliantly tells the stories of the capital's historical communities." -- PD Smith Guardian "Packed with fascinating detail." -- Chris Blackhurst Evening Standard "A masterful social history of London's suburbs" Your Family Tree magazine
