This is the first volume in a short series that will deal with the planning and development of Dublin from the earliest times to the present day. The focus is on the built environment and from both geographical and historical perspectives aims to unravel and explain the processes that have interacted to produce today's city.

There follows a detailed examination of the city's flowering in the eighteenth century, and their inter-relationships. This leads into a discussion of the problems of the nineteenth century city.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Brady and Simms (both geography, U. College Dublin) are joined by historians Jacinta Prunty (National U. of Ireland-Maynooth) and Edel Sheridan (Hannover U.) to trace the development of the city from its origin as a Viking sea-port, through its flowering as an elegant colonial capital at the end of the 18th century and the poverty and neglect of the 19th century, to its emergence as the capital of a newly independent country. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
