Milton Keynes books: History & Heritage

A Social History of Milton Keynes: Middle England / Edge City (British Politics & Society S.)
A Social History of Milton Keynes: Middle England / Edge City (British Politics & Society S.)

This book therefore discusses the popular and intellectual prejudices that have distorted understandings of the new city. It focuses upon the original thinking that went into the planning of Milton Keynes, highlights the most notable features of its design and construction, and assesses the impact of new development upon the countryside and agriculture. A city is nothing without its people, of course, so Mark Clapson looks at who has moved to Milton Keynes, and discusses their experiences of settling in. He also confronts the common myth of the new city's soullessness with an account of community and association that emphasises the strength of social interaction there. This work provides an informed account of the first decades of Milton Keynes, and emphasizes its relevance to social and urban change in England in the 1960s. The book should be of interest to urban and social historians of contemporary Britain, to planning historians, urban geographers, town planners, sociologists, and also the people of Milton Keynes.

Price: £31.09

Milton Keynes has recently been designated one of the four potential growth areas in the south-east of England. There are plans to build up to 70,000 new homes in the city before 2031, and also develop transport infrastructure. This will swallow up a huge amount of greenbelt, and change the city dramatically. In his new book Robert Cook examines the history of Milton Keynes so far, and discovers that different districts' separate identities have been maintained despite the coming of the new town thirty years ago. He also explores surrounding towns and villages, such as Bow Brickhill and Woburn Sands, not yet part of Milton Keynes but possibly due to be absorbed during a new wave of housebuilding.
