The book, based on material from the Society’s quarterly magazine Buzz, describes the environmental and planning disputes which led to the formation of the Society in 1966, some of the Society’s subsequent highs and lows, as well as the battles over planning applications, such as Athlone House which lasted over eighteen years;
