Urban History occupies a central place in historical scholarship, with an outstanding record of interdisciplinary contributions, and a broad-based and distinguished panel of referees and international advisors. Each issue features wide-ranging research articles covering social, economic, political and cultural aspects of the history of towns and cities. The journal coverage is worldwide in its scope: over half of the articles are on non-British topics, with a very strong concentration on European cities. It has recently developed a new publishing venture, hosting innovative multi-media websites - including graphics, sound and interactive elements - to accompany selected print articles.* The journal also includes book reviews, summaries of PhD theses, and surveys of recent articles in academic journals. In addition, Urban History acts as a forum for stimulating debate on historiographical and methodological issues. An indispensable tool for urban historians worldwide, the journal's annual bibliography features on average over 1000 publications culled from monographs, edited collections and periodicals.
