    This book represents a collaborative project. We are especially grateful to all the contributors; they responded to our requests and mercifully failed to comment on the length of time the project took to complete. The brief was simple and ambitious: bring together a list of active scholars to write accessible, informative pieces on aspects of the contemporary city. In practice of course, even the best-laid plans rarely unfold so easily or seamlessly. We acknowledge the patience of the contributors and publishers. We would also like to thank Robert Rojek who initiated the project, got the editors together and then gave us time and space to develop the project. Parts of Chapter One were previously published in Chapter 4 of Landscapes: Ways of Imagining the World by Winchester, Kong and Dunn (2003). They are reproduced here with permission from the publishers. Figure 2.2 is reproduced with permission of Bristol Record Office; Figure 13.1 is reproduced with kind permission of Max Ellis, the All other photographs are copyright the authors or have been sourced from copyright-free websites/archives.
