Despite common perceptions of the medieval world as mostly land-based or limited to individual courts, we can discover the development of the urbanization process already in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. The complexity of the matter requires a fully interdisciplinary approach, including art history, literature, urban geography, women's studies, social and economic history, religion, and philosophy. The contributions to this new volume build on extensive research on urban history but develop intriguingly new insight into living space, mental structures, and social conditions within medieval and early-modern cities.

But you just can't offend people like that! Well, we don't expect thin-skinned moralists or religionists, or even political right-leaners to enjoy these limericks. But that leaves a lot of us to savor some good-humored swipes at dominant figures and mores. Here are some versified musings by one who's been around the block, and is ready to unburden himself of some residue of his prejudices, passions, and jaundiced observations. He'd love to think that this collection might prod others to enlist whimsical measures to share theirs.

This professional manual has been revised and updated. It features Merv Block's countless do's and don'ts, distilling them into a handy set of pointers. Journalists who are stumped by a problem can consult the book's many chapters for mini-lessons on how to deal with it. Block points to action verbs and points out dozens of words not to use. And tells why not to use them. "Every writer needs an editor" is a truism, but editors are vanishing. So Block tells how a writer can be her own editor. His own, too.
