Anna Minton's writing has always highlighted complex subject areas which are vital to the way we live but are often overlooked. Ground Control emerged from a series of three agenda setting reports, two of which were published by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and another by the think tank, Demos, looking at the enormous impact of gated communities and ghettoes in the US and how this was being transported to the UK and the growing privatization of space.

Anna is the author of The Joseph Rowntree Foundation Viewpoint on fear and distrust and is a member of the writers' panel for The Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment. Her media experience and networks in urban policy have led her to advisory boards for a number of public and private sector clients.

Anna is the recipient of five national journalism awards. She was former staff writer for the Financial Times and writes regularly for the Guardian. Ground Control  is her first book.
