In this compact and authoritative historical survey of English urban landscapes, 15 distinguished 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 urbaniation of the 19th and 20th centuries. Different types of urban 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.
