The three volumes of The Cambridge Urban History of Britain represent the culmination of a tremendous upsurge of research in British urban history over the past thirty years. Mobilising the combined expertise of nearly ninety historians, archaeologists and geographers from Britain, continental Europe and North America, these volumes trace the complex and diverse evolution of British towns from the earliest Anglo-Saxon settlements to the mid-twentieth century. Taken together they form a comprehensive and uniquely authoritative account of the development of the first modern urban nation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... splendid collection, which is at once an excellent urban history of Britain and a history of Britain from the urban perspective ... fresh as well as important, interesting as well as judicious, thoughtful as well as scholarly. The volumes bulge with knowledge ... alongside this must be recorded the sheer exhilaration of reading so much first-rate scholarship ... Urban history and these volumes will be done a disservice if they are classified in a misleadingly narrow fashion.' Jeremy Black, The Times Higher Education Supplement
"Any student of the Victorian can find within these pages inspiring, well-finished data with which to bolster most arguments about cities large and small. The prestige of the undertaking, the stature of its contributors, its precision, and its prudent grounding in demonstrable 'historical fact,' assure its use-value as a reference work." Victorian Studies
