    This was a truly strange book.Apparently it was based on a documentary made for British TV It is about 1 the area known as the Peak District of England 2 the Health and Safety Laboratory there, where industrial and transportation accidents of various types are investigated and 3 Thomas Hobbs and William Blake who lived at least part of their lives in the Peak district.I found the book extremely confusing Perhaps it would help to see the documentary, but I m not sure I would like to know mo This was a truly strange book.Apparently it was based on a documentary made for British TV It is about 1 the area known as the Peak District of England 2 the Health and Safety Laboratory there, where industrial and transportation accidents of various types are investigated and 3 Thomas Hobbs and William Blake who lived at least part of their lives in the Peak district.I found the book extremely confusing Perhaps it would help to see the documentary, but I m not sure I would like to knowabout some of the issues they covered in the earlier history of the area, such as the Enclosure Acts and the response to them, the English Civil War, and the early religions of the area, some of which I have seen mentioned often in various other works but have never seen explored fully.Their coverage of Thomas Hobbs was pretty good, but it seems to have lead them into some strange philosophical assumptions They talk about Hobbs book Leviathan, and intimate that the Leviathan character was supposed to indicate the government of England at the time which is likely and that it was intended to be a demoniac entity Well, maybe But then they appear to go on to imply that the current British government, despite the changes that have occurred since then, is still somewhat of a demonic entity, and that the function of the Health and Safety Lab is somehow to support or prop up this demonic entity, and that, additionally but kind of an opposing idea, I thought that the methods used there somehow parallel the ancient methods of sympathetic magic hence the voodoo and, intentionally or not, also parallel the sacrifices to ancient gods.What I got out of it and I could just be misunderstanding was that they were advocating dismantling not just the government but the whole idea of a country and going back to some hypothetical golden age when all people lived in peace and harmony enjoying the blessings of their ancient gods Or something Anyway, it was definitely weird
