More cities-based reviews for you this week…

First we have Jacob Field reviewing (no. 767) Lost Londons: Change, Crime and Control in the Capital City 1550–1660, Paul Griffiths’ analysis of crime and migrant workers in London during this period. The author’s response can be found here.

Then Karl Bell tackles (no. 768) Cities in Modernity: Representations and Productions of Metropolitan Space, 1840–1930 by Richard Dennis, which seeks to take a multi-disciplinary approach to the modernising city.
