Book description

This definitive new book is sure to become the standard work on Leeds. It covers the history of the city from its earliest times right up to the twenty-first century. Dr Thornton, an acknowledged expert on the city, clearly explains how Leeds developed from a tiny settlement on the banks of the Aire into one of the most vibrant cities in Europe. The scope of the narrative is impressive and takes in social, economic, political, religious, military and cultural history. The book also boasts an impressive cast of characters. In addition the book has a very comprehensive bibliography (20 pages) and index (12 pages), making it ideal not only for the general reader but also for students and historians.
