Abstract

This is one of a number of papers in the same issue of CITY on the theme "How should we write about London?" This paper is a critical discussion of Working Capital: Life and Labour in Contemporary London, by Nick Buck, Ian Gordon, Peter Hall, Mike Harloe and Mark Kleinman (with Belinda Brown, Karen O’Reilly, Gareth Potts, Laura Smethurst and Jo Sparkes). Routledge, London, 2002. It expresses great admiration for the book but criticises it for being somewhat trapped within orthodox approaches and it suggests both missing topics and missing interpretations, evident when the book is read from a marxist point of view.
