This is a thematically structured detailed demographic analysis of Edinburgh. Each chapter addresses an aspect of urban life: the household and family; wealth and taxation; employment; the position of women; care of the poor. A further theme running through the book is the question of "urban-ness" in relation to the different social and economic structures of the various parishes of Greater Edinburgh. Based on an unusually wide range of sources - Poll Tax and Health Tax registers, testaments, burial registers and town council, Kirk and Craft records - this book provides a detailed and readable picture of life in Scotland's most important city and, of course, a capital city.
