Manchester: an architectural history
Manchester: An Architectural Historyis the first comprehensive and critical examination of the city's architecture from its origins in the Roman settlement at Castlefield to the present day re-building of the city center. More than an analysis of individual buildings, the book is about the growth of Manchester from a "mere village" to what many see as England's second city.
