Following a wide range of press coverage this week in York Press and BBC Radio York – and some misunderstandings of the aims and content of Paul’s York: A Walk on the Wild Side book – we’ve decided the best thing is to make available freely the PDF. So if you’re interested in finding out what Paul’s really saying, then read away!
Some of the debate has been fair enough. Paul’s argument is that York’s official representations haven’t always celebrated and brought to life the richer and less marketable histories. And we’re not scared of the debate, after all the point of York’s Alternative History has always been to do cultural politics; to tell lots of different stories about the city’s past so that the future can be ours for the making. It’s been great to see that Paul’s work has done that job so well.
