Who Owns England?, the book: a round-up of reviews & coverage

This post is by Guy Shrubsole. Last updated 7th February 2020.

My book Who Owns England? was published in hardback in May 2019, and is coming out in paperback in late March 2020 (if you’ve not got a copy yet, you can order one from the publisher here:)). Here’s a round-up of links to the reviews and coverage it’s generated to date. First, though, please check out my Twitter thread of acknowledgements to the many awesome people upon whose time, inspiration and love the book has drawn.

  1. Three questions:
    1) Considering land as a contributor to influence and control, one wonders what percentage of wealth as a whole resides in land?
    2)If land ownership in society as a whole, hasn’t changed its shape much since Norman times, despite, you know, all that history between then and now, what would likely change it now?
    3) Can you point to comparable studies in other areas — Middle and Far east,, the Americas, Russia, Africa, etc.?


  2. Not read the book yet, but have looked at the ‘Land for the Many’ report.
    In the absence of a Labour government what can we do over the next few years to raise awareness of the need for reform of land ownership and taxation to address the issues of climate change and inequality. Maybe petitions to challenge Boris Johnson to follow in the footsteps of his hero Winston Churchill?
