... This substantial volume ... is an authoritative work, for its author draws on his own deep knowledge of the citys past and shows himself well able to distil and present the researches of professional scholars (including his own) ... in a text both sound and readable. (Northern History) This fascinating book ... scores highly because of its detailed references to the social aspects of the citys history. These are woven into all the chapters, giving it the human touch many history books seem to lack. (Sheffield Telegraph) ... A fascinating account of the special alloy which is Sheffield ... Highly recommended. (The Tilt Hammer) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
