Victorian Dundee

£4.99

Product description

This book challenges Dundee's traditional image as a town overshadowed by the jute industry, abandoned by its wealthy middle classes and characterized by social strife and architectural ugliness. Brings together new research on the activities of Dundee's businessmen, civic elites, intellectuals, social reformers, urban planners and working classes to reveal a civic image that differs radically from the "juteopolis" myth. Exploring the development of Dundee before and after the heyday of jute, the book offers a contribution to the history of urban society and its management in Scotland in the 19th century and to a growing body of work on textile and manufacturing towns in this period.
Though used, the book shows only slight wear on one corner of the front cover; the spine is uncreased.
