Solsbury Hill: Chronicle of a Road Protest
Adrian Arbib, with a foreword by George Monbiot and Paul Kingsnorth
It is 1994. Tony Blair steps into the shoes of the recently deceased John Smith. The Channel Tunnel has just opened and British Rail is being dismantled and privatised. Margaret Thatcher's "largest road building programme since the Romans" is in full swing under John Major.
"It was great to see all of these pictures and brought a tear to my eye to see Kit again and a smile to see that crazy raft we built to combat the bailey bridge. It also reminded me just how barbaric it all was and how wonderful and amazing too, that we were SO empowered and SO strong, the miracles that happened daily, the stress of living in a war zone."
"Adrian Arbib's stunning photography captures better than anything else the spirit of the road protests of the 1990s."
"One look at the book will cure nature deficit disorder."
