Richard Rodger is Professor of Urban History and Director of the Centre for Urban History at the University of Leicester. He knows a lot about cities, and he certainly knows a great deal about Edinburgh, as the quite formidable list of archives and documents that were consulted in the making of this book reveal. The investment strategies of the Heriot and other trusts are detailed in the first section of the book, which then goes on to look at the complexities of the feuing system that had evolved by the nineteenth century.

Trusts, educational endowments and the Church were each instrumental in this process. This clear and lucid study explores the physical transformation of Edinburgh in the nineteenth century. The urban environmental damage associated with intensive building and overcrowding is also explored, as are the public health and co-operative responses which they prompted. Historians - whether political, urban, economic, social or legal - will find challenging new insights here, which have a resonance far beyond the confines of one city.
