About the Author:

Professor Davis is Professor of History at Bath Spa University and Course Director of M.A. in Irish Studies.

Review:

"Graham Davis's book takes its place amongst studies of local municipal politics - showing not so much a unique city learning how to be ordinary, but the ordinariness of city life, in the nineteenth century and in our own times, demanding a dialogue with the city's uniqueness." - Prof. Patrick O'Sullivan University of Bradford "This exploration of the slum is a masterly exercise in historical recovery that tears down many myths and stereotypes. Davis treats the inhabitants of the Avon Street district with a welcome respect.... Moreover, he successfully establishes that Avon Street had its own elite, made up of publicans, shopkeepers and master craftsmen." - Prof. John Newsinger Bath Spa University"
