Packed with facts and dates, this book covers the entire history of Birmingham from prehistoric times to the dawn of the new Millennium. In twelve bite-sized chapters, Peter Leather, Lecturer in Birmingham Studies at the University of Birmingham and writer of the popular "Hidden City" column in Birmingham MetroNews, tells the fascinating tale of Birmingham's rise from insignificant hamlet to international metropolis. He also pays tribute to the people, great and small, who made this possible - from Peter de Bermingham, founder of the Bull Ring market, to Matthew Boulton and Joseph Chamberlain - but most of all to the real heroes of the story: Brummies.

Birmingham has long needed a pacy, punchy and informed short history. Peter Leather has provided it.
