The premise of this study is that not only was there a shared urban dimension to the history of the period, but that it was a dimension whose influence substantially outweighed the relatively small numbers of people who lived in the towns and cities. These centres had a powerful dynamism - loci of forces of attraction and repulsion that reached out far beyond the boundaries of urban settlement. A dominant theme in this book is the impact of change, which while also felt in a rural context was amplified many-fold in the urban context. While this new study attempts to convey a sense of the parameters and diversity of life in an urban environment during the period, it also provides an insight into the ways in which existing structures of government and institutional organization attempted and often failed, to come to terms with new problems.
