Promotional Information

An ideal introduction to a central issue in nineteenth-century social history - the history of housing and the transition from a rural to an urban society.


"...Rodger's study is an excellent introduction to the social, economic, and political issues related to urban housing. Students at the undergraduate and graduate level will benefit from reading this introduction and then using both the notes and the updated bibliographical essay for further study."
