[From first paragraph] In this article I reflect on some of the key developments in the field of urban history since its emergence as a subdiscipline in the 1960s and consider some of the recent and current developments in the study of cities and their pasts from a largely, but not exclusively, British perspective. This article does not pretend to be a comprehensive survey of the field, nor does it have a particular chronological or thematic focus. It is simply reflective of my own interests as a British historian of the eighteenth century and as one of the editors of the Urban History journal published by Cambridge University Press.
