Liverpool in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries

Six of the seven papers appearing in this volume happen to fall into thematic groups, dealing with families and family affairs, and with Liverpool in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The themes were unplanned by the editors and reflect only some of the many strands of work on the region which historians of all types are pursuing. Other topics, other towns, and other periods are equally welcome as contributions.
