Events such as the Fire of London and the Plague, and historic locations like the Globe Theatre, are part of Londons heritage. Yet until recently, the history of the city between 1500 and 1750 has been little studied. During this period, Londons population soared from around 50,000 to nearly half a million--the demographic explosion transformed the city to a metropolis. London became a center of new social and sexual identities and a solvent of older, more hierarchical forms of social organization.

The essays in this volume cover the themes of polis and the police, gender and sexuality, space and place, and material culture and consumption. Within these themes are thieves, prostitutes, litigious wives, the poor, disease, “great quantities of gooseberry pye,” and the taxing question of fresh water.
