Dickens's London often acts as a complex symbol, composed of numerous sub-symbols, such as crowd, river, railway networks and police systems. This book is particularly interested in how Dickens's treatment of the city allows him to re-examine traditional Christian discourses on the issues of revelation, renunciation and regeneration.

The working day for the majority of us in 21st century England usually involves long hours spent in front of a computer screen, or working in service industries. The photographs in this book evoke a time when work for the majority of people in this country meant long hours of hard manual labour, toiling in factories, or working the land. The images are of men breaking stones by hand in a quarry; women working in cotton mills; children packing tea. Industries which have all but disappeared from these shores - mining, shipbuilding and fishing are depicted. Many of the photographs show rural life before the impact of mechanisation - when ploughs were pulled by horses and the harvest was gathered by hand. There are also glimpses of trades and crafts now almost lost to us - coppicing, thatching and the art of the blacksmith. The book may make us feel lucky that we no longer have to toil in field and factory. It may also make us proud of the workers who literally built this nation.

This ambitious survey covers all aspects of the period in which English society acquired its modern shape -- industrial rather than agricultural, urban rather than rural, democratic in its institutions, and middle class rather than aristocratic in the control of political power. For this revised edition the footnotes and bibliography have been fully updated, and the entire text has been reset in a larger and more attractive format. An ideal introduction to the subject, it masters a huge amount of material through its clear structure, sensible judgements and approachable style.

Contributors include: Jeremy Rewse-Davies, former Head of Design at London Transport, now heads the design consultancy Rewse Davies Associates, Dr Nigel Harris, Director of The Railway Consultancy and Jeremy Lloyd, an analyst with Urban Initiatives with experience in planning railway stations for the Railtrack and Underground networks. Planning, design and management are stages within a continuous process of asset stewardship. During the first stage the theoretical and political foundations are laid. During the second stage practical details are developed, and the assets themselves constructed and commissioned. The third and longest stage, management, oversees a process of alteration, maintenance, and repair that will continue throughout the life of the station. The management stage will, itself, contain elements of planning and design in order to realise alterations. A large organisation will be involved in planning, design and management all at once, planning a number of new and altered stations, organising the design and construction of a number more, and managing a large portfolio of stations of diverse size, age and condition. Each stage - planning, design and management - must bear in mind the needs of the succeeding stages. Each stage is constrained by decisions taken during the preceding stages. The bulk of the whole life cost of a project is committed early on. The process is cyclical - whether a vicious or virtual circle depends on the client, designer and manager. This book looks at the planning, design and management of railway stations. It examines a whole range of stations, from city stations handling tens of millions of passengers annually, through smaller urban and suburban stations, to rural halts. Commercial aspects and matters of image and branding are examined alongside technical and operational considerations. As important aspects of the rail renaissance that the world is now enjoying, metro and light rail stations are not neglected. Neither are specialist stations such as Parkways, rail-sea terminals and airport terminals. It is a vital purchase for architects, planners, engineers, developers, investors, consultants, operating companies worldwide as well as architectural students and libraries. Includes detailed analysis of station planning, design and management Considers all sizes and types of stations, including special types such as park-&-ride and stations for sports stadia Considers modular construction of stations as a means of achieving rapid, cost-effective improvements

The London Stone at Staines marks the ancient western boundary of the jurisdiction of the City of London. The Lord Mayor and Corporation’s conservancy of the Thames extended east from there as far as Yantlet in Kent. This is the stretch of the river documented in 'Liquid History'. Drawing on the resources of English Heritage’s unrivalled photographic archives, the book records a journey along the length of the tidal river and over almost 150 years. We see the rural Thames as it approaches London, riverside towns, the civic and commercial development of the riverbanks, the working docks and warehouses, the development of the web of bridges that now links north and south, barges, sailing ships and warships, the great flood defences and a tiny beach that flourished briefly at the Tower of London. Featuring the work of pioneers of photography and some of the great topographical photographers of the 20th century, and with a fascinating commentary by Stephen Croad, 'Liquid History' chronicles the ebb and flow of the life of the river.
