In this book Miles Glendinning and Stefan Muthesius tell the story of a great adventure of building and explain the architectural and political ideas that lay behind it. The authors tell how high-rise blocks – buildings in a modernist design that promised to address scientific and social needs with unprecedented precision – were constructed in almost every urban area.

Very good copy of this scarce study – dust jacket has been sellotaped at the corners to the book
