"Covering the era from the decline of Rome to the end of the medieval period, historian Pounds shows how the medieval city grew as an economic entity from a place where craftspeople could gather and make use of local resources to the growth and distribution of wealth and the influence on general welfare of both. He provides biographies of leading players in urbanization, case studies of cities and a range of primary documents on street life, citizenship, sanitary conditions, urban charters, and histories of specific English cities, as well as illustrations and an annotated bibliography."
