9780099546948: Cheek by Jowl: A History of Neighbours

Almost everyone has a neighbour. Neighbours can enrich or ruin our lives. They fascinate and worry us in equal measure. Soap operas watched by millions play with every lurid permutation of relationships in fictional neighbourhoods. Disputes over gigantic Leylandii and noise nuisance turn nasty and fill newspaper columns. These stories have a rich history - as long as we have lived in shelters, we have had neighbours.

Emily Cockayne traces the story of the British neighbour through nine centuries - spanning Medieval, Tudor and Victorian periods, two world wars and up to today's modern, virtual world. Cheek by Jowl is social history at its most colourful and compelling and puts the people back in the houses and the houses back on the streets.

"Intelligent, instructive and brightly funny" (Iain Finlayson The Times)

"A fine book packed with generosity, rivalry, misbehaviour, snobbery, love, murder and politics." (Alistair Mabbott The Herald)

"I enjoyed Cockayne's book immediately" (Rebecca Armstrong Independent)

Book Description:
