Can spirituality and community survive in a world increasingly dominated by globalization and urbanization? Kenneth Leech uses the absorbing story of the successive communities who have made their home in London's East End -- a unique pattern of exodus and exile involving Huguenot, Irish, Chinese, Jewish and Bangladeshi communities -- as a springboard for a provocative and powerful analysis of the way ahead for the church today.
