The City of London. Vol IV: A Club No More is the fourth and final volume of David Kynaston's epic history of the square mile in the modern era. This lively and informative book takes the story from the post-war era, when the City was hemmed in by bombsites and austere Chancellors, through to very recent developments, such as the "Big-Bang" deregulation of 1986. This is as much a social history as a financial study, with interesting discussions of the changing class and complexion of the City, and with fascinating details on the early computerisation of the big companies. As with earlier volumes Kynaston's style is that of an anecdotal storyteller. Colourful characters, dramatic boardroom struggles and heated exchanges between politicians and bankers dominate the pages.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"'Like its three predecessors, A Club No More is a work of breathtaking scope and accomplishment.'" -- D J Taylor * Independent *
"Magisterial. Kynaston is compulsively readable on all the great city scandals of recent years. But apart from anything else, his final volume is worth reading as a social documentary of our times.'" * Observer *
"The fifty or so years which are chronicled here in impressive detail were momentous ones for the City-an outstanding achievement.'" * TLS *
"The four volumes of his City history of the last 200 years are a splendid achievement-invaluable.'" -- Howard Davies * The Times *
"It is a good story, superbly told by Kynaston, who holds together a very diverse narrative with considerable skill. Its greatest merit is that it can be read by specialist and non-specialist alike." * Financial Times *
