ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's view on the book "Ruined City," by Nevil Shute. He evaluates the book, which is set in 1933-1934 in a markedly pre-war, pr-welfare-state England, but focuses on a slump, unemployment and the central theme of high finance versus real work. He mentions that the book has many qualities, but its characterization is only partially successful.
