"When the authors of this lively, well-written and attractive survey of Tyneside history say 'earliest times', they really mean it . . . I would unreservedly recommend this to the general reader" (Northern Echo)
"Rich in anecdotes and fascinating facts" (The Journal)
"An ambitious undertaking and the first of its kind to tackle so much of the region's history . . . an accomplished book" (Morning Star)
From the Publisher
Tyneside bursts with pride - not a swaggering conceit but the most obvious, warm and pungent sense of civic pride in Britain. Tynesiders know who they are and everybody else does too. And yet there exists no comprehensive history of the place. Not since the middle of the nineteenth century has there been a detailed treatment of the remarkable story of how Tyneside was made and how it came to look, sound and behave the way it does. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.See all Product Description

A good deal of Newcastle & Tyneside's civic "heroes" are here; Grainger, Stephenson, Buddle,Dobson et al & some less heroic (T.Dan Smith for example)- there's an array of famous North East names to be found within the pages of this book, describing their achievements & their historical context & importance.
This book is marvellous - it brings to life so much of our local history & describes how Tyneside has developed over the centuries.
If you love Tyneside & its history, you'll love this book.
Highly Recommended if you want to be familiar with Tyne side
through the ages.
