This fascinating collection of 200 photographs tells the story of Cardiff's disappearing docklands, known throughout the world as 'Tiger Bay'. It illustrates the history of the docks and the associated residential area of Butetown with its eclectic mix of nationalities and cultures; a fact highlighted by a researcher in the 1950s, who counted fifty-seven different nationalities residing in the area. The reader will encounter street scenes, with buildings that are long gone, demolished to make way for what is now knows as the Cardiff Bay Millennium Waterfront. The book provides glimpses of the metamorphosis of the docks from a small harbour to become the heart of a coal exportation and a centre from production. It will provide older residents of the area with a nostalgic look at the recent past and new residents with a view of what life was really like for those who lived in Tiger Bay. This endearing collection, selected mainly from the Butetown History and Arts Centre archives, provides an unparalleled insight into Butetown and Cardiff Docks and introduces the reader to some of the personalities that inhabited Butetown. In this selection , the authors bring alive the sights and scenes of Butetown to portray the area's rich historical heritage.

Building on the groundbreaking book Art in a City by John Willet, which first surveyed the history of visual arts in Liverpool, this engaging follow-up explores contemporary Liverpudlian art by looking at it from alternative perspectives. Exploring and challenging the claim that Liverpool is Britain’s second city for art, Art in a City Revisited surveys key institutional players such as the Bluecoat and the Walker Gallery, as well as the Tate Liverpool, FACT, and the Liverpool Biennial. A volume with rich discussion on the nature of artistic patronage, the changing role of public art, and the social and community role of the artist—including contributions from Sean Cubitt and Mary Jane Jacob—this book is a major consideration of the role art plays in city regeneration and the future of Liverpool as a center of creative industry.

Cardiff has an incredibly rich history, from its foundation as a Roman fort through its Norman occupation to its establishment as a county town following the Act of Union with England. Owing to its strategic position on the River Taff, Cardiff became the world's greatest coal port in the nineteenth century, and in the post-industrial era, the city has found a new identity as the capital of Wales. Join author Dic Mortimer as he explores the history of one of Britain's most fascinating and vibrant cities, exploring the people and events that made the Welsh capital what it is today.

Crime Fiction in the City: Capital Crimes expands upon previous studies of the urban space and crime by reflecting on the treatment of the capital city, a repository of authority, national identity and culture, within crime fiction. This wide-ranging collection looks at capital cities across Europe, from the more traditional centres of power - Paris, Rome and London - to Europe's most northern capital, Stockholm, and also considers the newly devolved capitals, Dublin, Edinburgh and Cardiff. The texts under consideration span the nineteenth-century city mysteries to contemporary populist crime fiction. The collection opens with a reflective essay by Ian Rankin and aims to inaugurate a dialogue between Anglophone and European crime writing; to explore the marginalised works of Irish and Welsh writers alongside established European crime writers and to interrogate the relationship between fact and fiction, creativity and criticism, within the crime genre.
