The New Towns were planned and built in England to house populations who had lost their homes in WWII. Beginning in 1946, the New Town Development Corporations was responsible for the management, design and development. Over seven decades the economic climate fluctuated, political ideas changed and new social aspirations superseded the dreams of the previous generations. Today, the New Towns preserve some of their initial character but their identity is shifting in favour of more and more national and international elements.

The book is accompanied with an essay by Social and Urban History Professor Mark Clapson.
