With 20 fact filled chapters covering 10 centuries, "Birmingham: A History of the City and Its People" is the first large-format full-colour history of Birmingham. An easy to use layout and beautifully detailed pictures make the publication an ideal project book for children in Key Stages 2 and 3 but it will be equally enjoyable for adults looking for a clear, accessible, fact-filled read. This features include: time chart, population graphics, further research guide; fascinating anecdotes about history-making people; shows the connections between the past and modern-day Birmingham; the growth of the city from its market beginnings; the development of industry - guns, pens, jewellery, chocolate, cars; the contribution of women, thinkers and workers; the settlement of diverse peoples, national and international; and looking forward to Birmingham's future as the UK's second city.
