Magazine: The Sunday Telegraph Magazine - 5 December 1999
(also see Books - Regeneration: The Story of the Dome)

Dome Wars by Adam Nicolson. The Dome is the grandest millennial project in the world - and the costliest. Getting it built has been an engineering triumph and the cause of savage political infighting. Only Adam Nicolson has had exclusive access to the torments, squabbles and soaring ambitions that make up this story. In this special edition of The Sunday Telegraph Magazine we present seven compelling extracts from his controversial new book Regeneration: The Story of the Dome.
