The Dennis Dominator was Dennis's first rear-engined double-decker bus chassis. It was launched in 1977. Dennis had been absent from the bus manufacturing market since the last Lolines were produced in 1967. The Dominator was described as bespoke, with numerous options. To some extent it was considered a successor to the Daimler/Leyland Fleetline.

By the time that production ceased in 1996 a total of 1007 of the model had been produced. The single largest customer for the type in the UK was South Yorkshire PTE, which acquired more than 320 (including one configured as a trolleybus for trials in connection with the test installation of a short trolleybus line at Doncaster racecourse), with other major customers including Leicester City Transport and Central SMT. Another significant market for the type was Hong Kong, where from 1979 onwards several batches were delivered. In 1982 a three-axle version - known as the Dennis Dragon - was produced specifically for the Hong Kong market; a number of these have been subsequently imported back to the UK and can now be found in use on sightseeing duties in London and elsewhere.

This volume details the development of the Dominator from its origins in the early 1970s through to the final years of operation. It also includes sections on associated models Domino and Falcon and its successor, the Arrow.
