About the Authors
  • The third volume in the Cambridge Urban History examines the process of urbanization and suburbanization 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.

    • The first comprehensive study of British cities and urban development in the modern period
    • Coverage of Scotland as well as England and Wales
    • Contributions by the leading scholars in the field, offering a new generation of work to the reader
