"This study of European cities and towns from the fall of the Roman Empire to the present day looks both at regional trends from across Europe and also at the widely differing fortunes of individual communities on the roller coaster of European urbanization. Taking a wide-angled view of the continent that embraces northern and eastern Europe as well as the city systems of the Mediterranean and western Europe, it addresses important debates ranging from the nature of urban survival in the post-Roman era to the position of the European city in a globalizing world." "Throughout, the book addresses key questions such as the role of migration, including that of women and ethnic minorities; the functioning of competition and emulation between cities, as well as issues of inter-urban cooperation; the different ways civic leaders have sought to promote urban identity and visibility; the significance of urban autonomy in enabling cities to protect their interests against the state; and not least why European cities and towns over the period have been such pressure cookers for new ideas and creativity, whether economic, political, or cultural."--Jacket

Case studies discuss networks in all the major European countries as well as looking at the distinctive world of small towns in the more 'peripheral' countries of Scandinavia and central Europe
British clubs and societies, 1580-1800 : the origins of an associational world by Peter Clark( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and German and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern freemasonry was invented in London about 1717, but was only one of a surge of British associations in the early modern era." "Providing the first account of the rise of this powerful and distinctive British social institution up to 1800, Peter Clark maps its penetration of the English-speaking world as it came to be exported to the Empire and across to North America. The wider economic, social, and political forces are discussed to show how they contributed to the development and growth of these clubs and societies, leading them to assume quasi-governmental functions, thereby playing a crucial role which affected relations between state, locality, and the citizen. A final chapter questions current views about voluntarism and the making of civil society, bringing the debate up to the present day."--Jacket

19 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2008 for the first time the majority of the planet's inhabitants lived in cities and towns. Becoming globally urban has been one of mankind's greatest collective achievements over time and raises many questions. How did global city systems evolve and interact in the past? How have historic urban patterns impacted on those of the contemporary world? And what were the key drivers in the roller-coaster of urban change over the millennia - market forces such as trade and industry? Rulers and governments? Competition and collaboration between cities? Or the urban environment and demographic forces? This pioneering comparative work by fifty leading scholars drawn from a range of disciplines offers the first detailed comparative study of urban development from ancient times to the present day. The Handbook explores not only the main trends in the growth of cities and towns across the world but also many of the essential themes in the making and remaking of the urban world."--Provided by publisher

I really love Peters work. its so full of fun and creativity, using things hes found; maps, letters, stamps, and then creating finished work that has a real sensitivity -Paul Smith, fashion designer. Paperwork includes subjects as varied as animals, fashion, accessories and some of the sources from which Clark derives his inspiration. Old maps, love letters, stamps, playing cards, match boxes, rosettes, buttons, labels, patterns, all form the starting point of Peter Clarks innovative and often humorous paper collages. Clark undertakes many scavenger trips to antiques fair, car-boot sales, bric-a-brac markets and second hand stores to find the right objects to inspire him. Paperwork presents the working methods of this eccentric and unique artist, showing the progression of his work from found ephemera to pieces of art. Accompanied by a background story to his work and beautifully illustrated with full-page pictures, this book provides us with an insight into Peter Clarks practice, from his early works to his most recent collages. Paperwork will inspire anyone with an interest in collage, collecting, portraiture and scrapbooking
