Manchester was the first great city of the new industrial age. It released a dynamic of capitalist technological change which transformed the globe. In Manchester today there exists a new post-modern urban culture enjoying a creative and innovative way of life in a landscape inherited from its industrial past. From the world’s first timetabled intercity railway, linking the city to the sea, to the squelchy sounds of acid house reverberating through The Haçienda.
It is about how Mancunians have constructed the new and alternative.
This book has a hardback cover and can sit nicely on a coffee table or shelf, although its best look is when it’s being skimmed through, as each letter that comes to form the beloved name Manchester unravels a snippet of local history.
