What unites John Constable, Samuel Johnson, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, Mahatma Gandhi, Peter Sellers, Henry Moore, Maxim Litvinov, General de Gaulle, Stanley Spencer, Thomas Masaryk, Agatha Christie, Jim Henson, Ian Flemming, and Ernő Goldfinger? Find out by reading this book about Hampstead. For many centuries, this locale with fresh air, high above central London, has been attracting people from all walks of life. This book takes a new and original look at Hampstead (and its environs) from prehistoric times to the present day. Many aspects of the area, which have not found their way into earlier books about Hampstead, are included in this volume. The author, who has known and visited the area over many decades, examines the locality from viewpoints both familiar and unfamiliar, and shows why it is in many ways unique and always fascinating.
