Belfast - The Making of the City

The rise of the city of Belfast has long been regarded as one of the economic marvels of the nineteenth century, and continues to be of particular interest to historians, as much on the account of the city’s extraordinary tensions and divisions as its radical politics or its commercial and industrial grandeur.

This exciting appraisal of the period between the end of the eighteenth century and the Great War is illustrated by over 150 photographs, maps and line drawings.

Twelve leading commentators and historians consider the important changes taking place in thought, commerce, art, literature, entertainment, industry and society during the city’s formative years.
