Britain's leading photojournalist selects the pick of his black-and-white images of Britain's underclass and upperclass to create an extraordinarily vivid and intimate portrait of Britain at the start of the new millennium.
From the palaces of Westminster to Durham's high-security, H-block prison wing for women murderers, from remote Scottish crofting communities to the violence-scarred, inner-city neighbourhoods of Scottswood and Benwell in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, from the richest man in England (the Duke of Westminster) and the C-in-C of the British Army to lives dominated by the abuse of drugs, violence and unemployment, Nick Danziger traverses the land in images of unique and dramatic power.
This beautifully produced book follows in the great Anglo-Saxon social documentary tradition of Dickens, Jack London, George Orwell, J B Priestley and Bill Brandt.
