From the bestselling writer of The artwork of shuttle comes a wittily interesting exploration of the unusual "non-place" that he believes is the imaginitive middle of our civilization.

Given unheard of entry to at least one of the world's busiest airports as a "writer-in-residence," Alain de Botton discovered it to be a show off for lots of of the key crosscurrents of the trendy world--from our religion in expertise to our destruction of nature, from our worldwide interconnectedness to our romanticizing of the unique. He met tourists from in all places and spoke with each person from luggage handlers to pilots to the airport chaplain. Weaving jointly those conversations and his personal observations--of every thing from the poetry of room carrier menus to the eerie silence in the course of the runway at midnight--de Botton has produced a unprecedented meditation on a spot that almost all people by no means decelerate adequate to determine sincerely. Lavishly illustrated in colour via well known photographer Richard Baker, every week on the Airport finds the airport in all its turbulence and soullessness and--yes--even beauty.

Example text

In the year 2000 there were about 16,000 licensed taxi cabs, technically known as Hackney Carriages, whose 20,000 drivers would probably be surprised to learn of their dependence upon French terms to describe their vehicles. In July 2000 Transport for London, under the authority of the mayor, took over responsibility for regulating taxis. In 1831 the Hackney Coach monopoly was effectively abolished and from this time omnibus operators were allowed to ply their trade within the central area. George Shillibeer had argued for the abolition of the Hackney monopoly on behalf of ‘the middling class of tradespeople whose finances cannot admit of the accommodation of a hackney coach and therefore necessitated to lose that time in walking which might be beneficially devoted to business’.

However, it may be doubted whether the congested streets of the central district would have enabled much time to be saved until the heroic street building programme of Sir Joseph Bazalgette began to take effect in the 1870s. SIR JOSEPH BAZALGETTE, 1819–91 Between 1856 and 1888 Bazalgette, one of the greatest of Victorian engineers, built more of London than anyone else, before or since.
