PD Smith, The Guardian [A] scholarly yet very readable work

Jeremy Black, History A first-rate study that is clearly written and well aware of the strengths and problems of the urban experience.

Fiona Williamson, European History Quarterly An exceptional book. Clark's narrative is refreshingly divorced from the common 'Atlantic-centric' perspective, his subject knowledge awe-inspiring, and his prose clear and engaging. It is also a book suitable for all; from the scholar wishing for a good topic overview to anyone with a casual interest wanting to know more.

Professor Peter Borsay, University of Aberystwyth A fine synthesis - a tour de force - that embodies a hugely impressive range of knowledge and understanding about towns, and deserves to have the widest readership

Mike McCarthy, Medieval Archaeology an important book and it should be read and inwardly digested by archaeologists as well as historians. It is a thoroughly good read

Andrew Lees, English Historical Review Written by a leading specialist on early modern towns in Britain ... this volume will further enhance its author's already considerable reputation as one of our premier guides through the urban past ... [an] excellent book.
