A Centenary History of Nottingham edited by John Beckett

isbn 9781860774386 Phillimore, 2006

This details the history of Nottingham from its Anglo-Saxon origins to its centenary in 1997. Part I looks briefly at the origins of settlement in the area, and then at the evolution of the medieval town growing up around its Norman Castle. Part II lays special emphasis on urban renewal between the mid-seventeenth and the late eighteenth centuries, and on the development of the hosiery industry. Part 111 concentrates on the framework knitting industry and the rapid growth of the city from the late eighteenth century and the development of the slums in the nineteenth century. Part IV carries the story down to the end of the twentieth century, which saw the development of the modern commercial city. A team of over 20 authors has come together to make this the most comprehensive account of the city of Nottingham ever written. 624pp illus.

A heavy book.
