Review: "This volume is an overview of the subject from prehistory to the twentieth century, examined in unprecedented detail. The ten chapters provide wide-ranging and up-to-date interpretation by contributors who are all experts in the periods about which they write. They analyse issues such as settlement change and distribution within the context of environment, demography and culture, and set the agenda for future research in this expanding area."--Jacket.
