About the Author

Peter Malpass Is Emeritus Professor Of Housing And Urban Studies At The University Of The West Of England, Bristol.


This book is a labour of love [.] a detailed account of how Bristol changed from an essentially medieval trading port built of wood and stone to a modern industrial city built of brick and iron. * BRISTOL TIMES *
What Malpass has achieved in this book as a whole is remarkable. It is very well written and readable [...] The book itself has been beautifully produced by the publishers, Boydell and Brewer, with particularly good quality images. It deserves a wide readership from local and professional historians and every citizen of Bristol with an interest in their city's past and present. * URBAN HISTORY *
[A] fascinating and lively narrative which is an important addition to the relative lack of scholarship on nineteenth-century Bristol. * SOCIAL HISTORY *
Malpass has made a valuable contribution to the literature on Bristol, and its nineteenth-century development in particular. * HISTORY *
