Summary
"In this historical survey of English urban landscapes, 15 historians explore the development and significance of our towns and cities. The opening chapters provide an overview of human settlements from Roman times to 1800, and the rest of the book is devoted to the massive urbanization of the 19th and 20th centuries. Different types of uban development - industrial towns commercial cities, slums and suburbs - are described and analysed, together with issues such as transport, shopping, recreation, housing, and images of the town and city in literature, art, and film. The chapters are supplemented by cameos that focus in detail on specific towns and subjects."--BOOK JACKET
