Northerners

Product description

Review

‘Entertaining and informative. … Avoids sentimentality and stereotypes. … Groom keeps his history admirably down to earth.’ The Times, Book of the Week

‘A definitive new chronicle of the region, the first to appear this century.’ The Mirror

‘Groom’s chronicling of northern setbacks is urbane rather than indignant. … Comprehensive and highly readable.’ Financial Times

‘This is a huge book, in which the author slips seamlessly and triumphantly from one subject to another.’ Literary Review

‘Hugely impressive.’ Big Issue

‘A rich and kaleidoscopic history of a region, its landscape, industries, culture and people. Northerners is rigorous, digressive, discursive, always entertaining and enlightening, as full of good things as the North itself.’ Stuart Maconie, author of Pies and Prejudice

‘A wonderful compendium of the North’s proud, deep, ancient otherness.’ James Hawes, author of The Shortest History of England

‘An essential writer on politics and business and a tireless champion of the north.’ George Parker, political editor, Financial Times

‘A measured and essential voice in these compromised times.’ Adam Boulton, editor-at-large at Sky News and presenter of All Out Politics

‘Few people are better placed to write the story of northerners. One of journalism’s most astute observers of the state of Britain.’ Helen Pidd, North of England editor, The Guardian

‘Brian Groom is one of the leading experts on Britain’s regions and nations and a perceptive analyst.’ Duncan Weldon, The Economist, author of Two Hundred Years of Muddling Through

‘Panoramic, authoritative and a beautiful read. Brian has written the book everyone who wishes to understand the north of England must read.’ Sebastian Payne, author of Broken Heartlands

About the Author

Brian Groom is a journalist and a leading expert on British regional and national affairs. His career was spent mainly at the Financial Times, where he was assistant editor and worked in various capacities. He lives in Saddleworth, South Pennines. This is his first book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read ..
By The South Seas cruiser on 24 April 2022
A smashing read … lots of history but always lightly done - mixing detail, personalities and colour.
Well printed too - a proper book to take pleasure in. Even southerners will enjoy it!
