Description: From the disease-infected rookeries and teeming vice-president vice-ridden streets to the sweat shops, coffee houses and spacious parks, Dorothy George's recreation of a capital city in a dirty, brutal -- but also elegant -- age has never been surpassed.

Both social history and an impeccably documented reference work that draws on all available primary sources, her book chronicles the change in social attitudes between 1700 and 1800 that left London cleaner, healthier and more ordered. It is also a tribute to the far-sighted men and women who fought (sometimes singlehandedly) to rout the poverty and degradation of London and whose philanthropic legacy we still benefit from today.
