Uk Cities: A Look at Life and Major Cities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
This work focuses on the largest cities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, countries which make up the United Kingdom. It provides basic history and geography with an emphasis on life in contemporary times. Other subjects covered include cultural diversity, demographic composition and many other aspects of life in the nation's largest urban centres. The United Kingdom is one of the most urbanised countries in the world and, because of that, the cities covered in the book collectively constitute a microcosm of this metropolitan nation. When you learn about the cities, you also learn about the country in general especially the urban aspect of the United Kingdom as a highly industrialised nation. The industrial revolution led to the establishment of towns and cities and today these urban centres are central to life in this vibrant nation. If you are going to the United Kingdom for the first time, you may find this work to be useful. But even those who don't intend to go to the UK may learn some important things about some of the most dynamic urban centres in the world including London.
