More Description

Highly acclaimed in the original French edition, this landmark urban study of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries appears here for the first time in English. It provides one of the first synoptic views of the evolution of the French urban system before the Industrial Revolution by examining not only the major cities but the wider urban hierarchy. The innovations of this study lie in Lepetit's use of models of urban interaction and the unraveling of the complex spatial dimensions to urbanization.
