It is fascinating to read this book written in 1985 about malls. They weren't new inventions at that time; they were already 20 or more years in existence and much more was to come at a later date. Death of malls. Of course redevelopments are turning former malls into big box centres, power centres, or call them what you will. It is almost a time-capsule look into the earlier decade, and the author goes on at length about these behemoths. Where is he now? I will have to do some further research about the interesting characters mentioned in the book. The author plainly cares about his subject and is entranced by malls as an idea.
