              Originally published in 1976. Slum clearance is a particularly significant process because it places the ordinary citizen in a state of extreme dependence on his local authority. The local authority not only destroys his existing environment but controls access to a replacement c...ouncil house. This book highlights both the control over the life chances of individual citizens which local government can exercise and the potential impotence of citizens caught up in a complex bureaucratic process. It investigates the difficulties faced by individuals in exercising even the rights and choices which are ostensibly provided by the existing structure. The book also seeks to apply theories of urban sociology in exploring the control of access to public housing. The essential objective of this study is demystification of the administrative processes of slum clearance and rehousing through analysis of local authority bureaucracy and its impact on individuals.

              The poems in The Gun That Starts the Race, Peter Norman's third book of poetry, alternately like a David Lynch film or an episode of The Simpsons, find the uncanny in the everyday, surprise you, make you laugh and weep (sometimes simultaneously) with recognition at the fleeting s...park of our existence. Many of these poems are like archaeological sites between the sturm und drang of people's fleeting dramas, exploring in language playgrounds recently vacated, graves recently inhabited, basements and dark corners where life and death goes on without us.From free-verse lyrics to masterful sonnets, Norman's poems weld form and content together organically. They neither baffle nor condescend, blending an effortless style to surprising metaphors and striking images, and to a restless, roving intellect, trying to get to the bottom of things, but never satisfied that it is not false bottom. Here, Bolsheviks play tennis with Marxist rules; crows, maggots, and spiders go about their business, oblivious to our sufferings; and the Mole Men of Zug break into song.In The Gun that Starts the Race, Peter Norman gives us a world that lives and breathes and endures, and of which we are only a temporary part.

              In Peter Norman's exciting debut collection, the poet stands, awed and perhaps a tad scared, at the brink of a loud, swirling, thrilling world. Its mysteries and its upheavals spark amusement, sadness and occasionally anger. Whether navigating love and loss, facing the trauma of ...modern warfare or simply trying to pick up some bread at the supermarket, Norman N already an accomplished writer with a broad arsenal of poetic forms and tones N steps through the theme park's gate and into its carnival whirlwind. Clear and plainspoken, these eclectic poems deliver pleasure, mystery and the unexpected.
