Glasgow: The Forming of the City

Peter Reed

Edition: 2


Glasgow is the prime British example of the industrial city, and this lavishly illustrated book traces its architectural and socio-economic history from its merchant origins, right through the nineteenth- and twentieth-century urban decline, and onwards to its present, much celebrated regeneration. This new edition offers the reader an insight to Glasgow at the Millennium, covering the most recent scholarship and opinion, and looking to the future of Glasgow in the coming century.
