About this book


This volume in the Context and Commentary series draws on a wide range of historical and literary source material to illustrate the rapid growth of the major industrial cities in the early and middle nineteenth century. It identifies common problems and patterns of development, while at the same time taking into account differences of environmental, industrial and cultural context, thus emphasising the variety of urban experience in the period.
