DescriptionHubbub takes us on a not-for-the-squeamish tour of pre-Industrial Revolution England, where city streets are crowded, noisy, filthy, and reeking of smoke and decay. Focusing on offenses to the eyes, ears, nose, taste buds, and skin, the book explores the daily experience of the rich and the poor and paints a nuanced and highly detailed portrait of English city life.
