"From Brixton to Brazil, Julian Dobson provides a positive plethora of examples from the retail world to help illustrate what works (and what doesn't) when it comes to saving town centres." European Journal of Current Legal Issues
"This is a fascinating and important book - a primer for the reinvigoration of local economies and high streets. At last a refreshing alternative to the official narrative of the decline of the high street." Anna Minton, writer, journalist and Visiting Professor at the University of East London, UK
"The book is an impassioned plea for a new approach to high streets, based on a lifetime of research, consultancy and observations of what makes high streets tick." People, Place and Policy
"A significant and important book that is entertainingly and engagingly written. Julian Dobson critiques, dissects and then rebuilds the state of our high streets and town centres, arguing coherently for new, locally based, ground-up reconstruction of place and community and challenges us all to get involved." Professor Leigh Sparks, Professor of Retail Studies at the University of Stirling, UK
"The debate about high streets has become completely stuck. By setting it in a wider context about the places we might want to live in the future, Julian Dobson has relaunched it in a really exciting way." David Boyle, author, and fellow of the New Economics Foundation
