"Sensational... I don't think I have read a better book about this
"Wright is, as ever, a finder, a noticer, a powerful sustainer of argument."
"For Wright, detail is everything, and he clambers over the locked gates and barbed wire fences to discover a 'deep England' of eccentric squires, quasi-fascistic communes and neolithic pathways."
