Beautifully illustrated and blending archaeological, cartographic and geographic resources, the study also examines the lives of people who lived in Scotland's towns and cities to give the reader a vivid impression of the times and a clear understanding of how these urban developments came to be. The book also considers urban heritage and asks what we have lost and may continue to lose through neglect and fragmentation.

"This is an example rich book based on the author's already substantial contributions to understanding and knowing Scottish towns...A key feature of the book is an extensive and well chosen bibliography and list of sources. This is an education in Scottish urban history in itself. This is a scholarly and accessible book and unlike much scholarship the paperback is produced at an affordable price." -- R J Morris, Edinburgh University, Book of Old Edinburgh Club
