Priestley travelogue, it remains relevant, and, indeed, what Priestley wrote has particular resonance in these modern times. In 1934, J.B Priestley described his journey through England from Southampton to the Black Country, to the North East and Newcastle, to Norwich and home. In capturing and describing an English landscape and people hitherto unseen in literature of its kind, he influenced the thinking and attitudes of an entire generation and helped formulate a public consensus for change that led to the formation of the welfare state. Insightful, profound, humorous and moving, English Journey captures Priestleys deep love of his native country and tells us so much about the human condition and the nature of Englishness.The fully illustrated edition published in 2012 by Great Northern Books contains a contemporary perspective from Stuart Maconie, an introduction by Priestleys son, Tom, and a perceptive contributuion from Lee Hanson, editor of the Rediscovering Priestley series for Great Northern Books.Great Northern Books have done Priestley and his many fans a greatfavour by re-issuing this classic work.
