Municipal services and employees in the modern city new historic approaches by Michèle Dagenais ( )
13 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Municipal Services and Employees in the Modern City considers the roles played by local institutions and particular processes that shaped the urban fabric. It rediscovers from models and maps the constituent dynamics of cities since the beginning of the nineteenth century, and demonstrates how patterns evolved in the way services and locations were organized; how urban transformation was underpinned by structural development, and how the municipal workforce became an integral part of the agencies of change. Municipal Services and Employees in the Modern City suggests that municipal experiences are central to the development of urban studies. Its focus of analysis ranges across Europe and the Americas from high-ranking bureaucrats to firefighters, engineers to accountants, and town clerks to public servants

Historic Govan : archaeology and development by Chris Dalglish ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This survey offers a broad-ranging synthesis of the history and archaeology of Govan, Glasgow, and aims to inform conservation guidance for future development." "The burgh's origins in early Christian times are demonstrated by the remarkable and enigmatic series of carved stones contained in Govan Old Parish Church. This church remained a haven of tranquility during Govan's remarkable transformation, in less than a century, from a small riverside settlement to the centre of world shipbuilding." "Govan was, before being absorbed by Glasgow in 1912, the fifth largest burgh in Scotland. Synonymous with shipbuilding and advances in marine engineering that carry on to this day, the town bears evidence of its associated industries and the distinctive social institutions fostered by shipbuilding, like Elder Park and the Pearce Institute." "The town has benefited from recent archaeological investigation around Govan Old Parish Church, which has increased understanding of the early Christian roots of the burgh. The authors consider where other areas of archaeological potential he, to inform future management of Govan's historic environment, and pose questions about the evolution of Scotland's burghs in general." "This book forms part of the Scottish Burgh Survey - a series designed to identify the archaeological potential of Scotland's historic towns."--BOOK JACKET
