David Michael Palliser, Peter Clark, Martin Daunton
Cambridge University Press, 2000 - Business & Economics - 970 pages
The third volume in the Cambridge Urban History examines the process of urbanisation and suburbanisation in Britain from the early Victorian period to the twentieth century. Twenty-eight leading scholars provide a coherent, systematic, historical investigation of the rise of cities and towns in England, Scotland and Wales, examining their economic, demographic, social, political, cultural and physical development. The contributors discuss pollution and disease, social conflict, the relationships between towns and the surrounding countryside, leisure and consumption, local civic institutions and identities, and municipal and state responsibilities.
