Promotional Information

'This is an excellent introduction to urban studies, from a novel perspective - it is the first book on medieval towns to give the urban space proper attention, and the only one I know to take a cultural history perspective.' - Professor Christopher Dyer, University of Leicester 'An original approach to urban history - especially at undergraduate level. Refreshing, clear and well explained - with a good selection of comparative examples.' - S. Rees Jones, University of York '...an excellent introductory survey which would be ideal for students.' - Elizabeth Freeman, University of Tasmania, Paregon 20.1 'Urban Life proves to be a pleasant introduction to medieval history, as the author successfully synthesizes older and modern reaserch.' - Prof. Dr. Albrecht Classen, University of Arizona, USA
