The citys motto rings out Let Glasgow Flourish yet this book powerfully shows that many citizens languish as a result of mental ill-health, physical illness, deprivation, worklessness, gangs, drink and family breakdown.The damaging effects of pronounced inequality and the corrosive dynamic which emerged within many families are exposed in powerful prose, backed by assiduous research and clear argument.Essential reading for anyone concerned with Glasgow and Scotland and for those interested in healing a fractured society.“Powerful and moving. . . a brilliant book. . . it deserves a wide readership.”Baroness Helena Kennedy“Its strength is that it shatters myths but offers hope, giving it an increasingly rare intellectual integrity.”Alex Wood, Times Educational Supplement Scotland
