Inhaltsangabe: Book by Cockayne Emily
Críticas: "'Taking us by the hand, Emily Cockayne leads us through the streets of early modern London - Manchester, Bath and Nottingham, too - and shows us a series of Hogarthian prints come to life.' Kathryn Hughes, The Guardian 'To read Hubbub is to be transported back to that sense of childlike wonder in everything gross and revolting... One of the many delights of this jolly, anecdote-laden history is that, just when you think it can't get any worse, it does.' Melanie McGrath, The Evening Standard '...a thoroughly entertaining read, one whose greatest pleasurers lie in the extraordinary accumulation of incidental detail to be found in its teeming pages.' Andrew Holgate, The Sunday Times '...hugely enjoyable... the horrors of city living are so vividly brought to life in this scholarly and readable book.' Andrea Stuart, The Independent 'A humane and erudite work. The reader cannot help but find a shared humanity between the early modern age and our own.' Clare Clark, Times Literary Supplement"
