This richly illustrated history explores every aspect of life in Manchester. Manchester is noted for the 'Industrial Revolution' - its factories, working-class people and urban development all based around its production of cotton textiles. But this is not the complete story. Manchester has always been a more vibrant place which dates back to Roman times. This book traces the development of this important city and its people from the earliest times to the present, where each period in its progress links to the next. The history of Manchester is very much based around its people, who were often pioneers, whether this be the first railway line, the first public library, fighting for greater political rights, or key wealth creators for the nation. As we advance through the twenty-first century, Manchester's role in the United Kingdom remains undiminished as it becomes ever more cosmopolitan and a northern powerhouse of economic, social and political progress. AUTHOR: Dr Deborah Woodman is an experienced historian who has taught history at the Universities of Huddersfield, Salford and MMU, and has had several books and articles published on the role of drink in society; commerce and trade; and popular politics of the nineteenth century. She lives in Oldham and is currently Research Development Officer at the University of Salford. 80 b/w illustrations
