This book follows Britain's exploitation of, and respect for, its coastline from prehistoric times to the present day. Gale covers both the extraction of resources and the leisure facilities with which Britain's coastline has been invested, whilst at the same time acknowledging its role in waste disposal and the transport of both goods and people. She highlights a striking contrast between the coastal defences of the past and those of the present and future - the former to keep marauders out, the latter to keep the cliff in. This will be warmly welcomed by anyone with an enthusiasm for the coastline and sea.
