Anna Neima is a historian with a PhD from the University of Cambridge. She is a respected and renowned authority on communalism, utopias and Dartington Hall. She was brought up locally and is fascinated by Dartington and its history.

“Fascinating…by showing how a global crisis can lead people to question tradition and reshape society, the subject remains important to this day.” Guy Stagg, The Spectator.
