Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London In The Eighteenth Century: A Great and Monstrous Thing (Hardcover)
Full credit to Mr White for completing his London trilogy. Readers of his earlier volumes will recognise the high standards White aspires to and indeed achieves. However, this volume is considerably weaker though no less readable. White was no doubt aided by the incredible advances made in electronic catalogues and finding aids to supplement the areas of study he covers. Unfortunately, at least a couple of the chapters read like recycled lectures with the overuse of the colloquial `then' repeated redundantly far too often. There is a return to form by the end - if you can make it that far. White's forte is political analysis and this provides a very satisfying conclusion to this heavy (literally) volume.

Did you mean "aides" or "aids"?
