520    This is a book about Britain during a time of "negative de
       -industrialization". It is not, however, a book about 
       economics or statistics, but about people and the lives 
       they lead in the midst of change and uncertainty. It is 
       about men and women hit by economic forces beyond their 
       control, and getting back up off the canvas, or staying 
       down. It is about being unemployed. It is about trying to 
       get a business off the ground, and living with the risk, 
       and trying to get through the consequences of the failure,
       or the success. It is about crime and vice and all the 
       other distractions in life. It is about threat and 
       survival, and trying to be somebody at a tune when the 
       green shoots of recovery were still not visible through 
       the stony ground of Northern industrial Britain. It is 
       about what it was like to be there at the sharp end when 
       the foundries and furnaces and the mines all stopped, to 
       see the human cost of negative de-industrialization, to 
       see how some survived.
