Voices from a disused quarry published today

I’m very pleased to announce that my book Voices from a disused quarry is published today. The book tells the story of the Centre for Alternative Technology through the oral history testimony of the people who were closest to it: workers, members, friends and neighbours. Based on over 100 interviews conducted during a three year oral history project the book explores CAT’s history of technological development, it’s unique co-operative working structure, its place in Wales and the Dyfi Valley and it’s search for an environmental philosophy based on scientific understanding. The book is available from  http://store.cat.org.uk/ and as an ebook from http://www.amazon.co.uk/Voices-disused-quarry-Alternative-Technology-ebook/ Also today we are launching a new website which helps users uncover CAT’s substantial archive of documents, digital and oral history interviews now kept at the National Library of Wales. Visit it here.
