Review:

"Dr. Chalkin achieves the notable feat of compressing two hundred years of urban history into less than eighty pages of text. Particularly welcome, and reflecting one of Chalkin's particular areas of expertise, is a wide-ranging chapter devoted to the construction of towns: their physical fabric, how building was undertaken, and who paid for it." H-Net Reviews

"this is a book that will prove very useful to students approaching the subject for the first time...remarkably detailed" EH.NET Oct 2001

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This 2001 volume in New Studies in Economic and Social History examines the growth and development of English towns in the critical period between 1650 and 1850, when the proportion of the population living in towns rose from a sixth to a half. Christopher Chalklin surveys the demography, economy and social structure of market and county towns, port and manufacturing centres, new dockyard towns, spas and seaside resorts.
