A ROAD TO EXTINCTION

CAN PALAEOLITHIC AFRICANS SURVIVE IN THE ANDAMAN ISLANDS? 

The Jarawa tribe wants nothing to do with modern civilisation, but modern civilisation doesn't care. Tourists travel each day along the Andaman Trunk Road in the hope of seeing these naked pygmy hunters in what is now India's human safari park. Jonathan Lawley goes back to the colony his grandfather used to run to see how bad things are.

In this extraordinary memoir, one of Britain's most important industrial designers tracks his career from the progressive idealism of his school days at Bedales to his passionate enlistment into the Royal Flying Corps.
