Providing essential knowledge about the British capital's built environment, these two volumes cover a large portion of the parish of St. Marylebone, bounded to the south by Oxford Street and to the north by the Marylebone Road, and stretching from just west of Marylebone High Street to the parish boundary along Cleveland Street near Tottenham Court Road to the east. This area is rich in historic buildings and includes some of London's most celebrated addresses, including Portland Place, Cavendish Square, and Harley Street. Among the most important buildings covered in this superbly illustrated book are Robert and James Adam's development of Portland Place, where the Royal Institute of British Architects' headquarters is a notable 20th-century insertion. Other landmarks include Marylebone Parish Church, All Saints Margaret Street and All Souls Langham Place, and the vast, recently demolished Middlesex Hospital. In addition to new photography, this volume includes meticulous architectural drawings and detailed coverage of the topography.

This book provides a scholarly but accessible account of British regional development during the twentieth century, focusing on the emergence and development of the 'North-South' divide. Beginning with regional imbalance in the Victorian and Edwardian economies, the book goes on to discuss the effects on the First World War and its aftermath, which created a discernible split between the depressed North and West, and the relatively prosperous South. Attention is also paid to the impact of government policy on regional development during the interwar years and beyond, and factors affecting industrial location in this period.
