Book review: In “The New Enclosure: The Appropriation of Public Land in Neoliberal Britain”, Brett Christophers claims that Britain’s biggest and most consequential privatisation is its least known and understood. The Margaret Thatcher-era privatisation of state-owned industries and utilities and sell-off of council houses are well documented in the academic literature, but it is the privatisation of land that lies at the heart of these disposals and its results have been profound.

“The New Enclosure” fills a gaping hole in our understanding of the contemporary history of British capitalism.
