Stonehenge: Celebration and Subversion - Andy Worthington
This innovative social history looks in detail at how the summer solstice celebrations at Stonehenge have brought together different aspects of British counter-culture to make the monument a 'living temple' and an icon of alternative Britain. The history of the celebrants and counter-cultural leaders is interwoven with the viewpoints of the land-owners, custodians and archaeologists who have generally attempted to impose order on the shifting patterns of these modern-day mythologies.

This wonderful book takes you on a journey through the recent life of Stonehenge - filled with photographs that really bring its Spirit to life, not of a monument to be looked at as one might look at a scientific item, but as a living entity in its own right that continues to inspire generations. Highly recommended!
