Walks Through Liverpool HistoryWalks Through History: Liverpool (Walks Through History S.) Liverpool is a great city to explore on foot. It has many interesting buildings and stories, some very beautiful parks and gardens, and many different urban landscapes, from the breezy hills and football stadiums of Everton and Anfield to the salty industry of the docks and the fascinating back streets and grandeur of the city centre. It is a small and compact city and can easily be walked across in two or three hours. This book of Liverpool walks is a celebration of the beauty and poetry of the city, the unexpected names and people encountered, and the ever-changing landscapes. It is a guidebook to the city's odd corners, and a practical handbook of urban exploration. The walks featured include industrial walks for the serious urban explorer, such as the 12-mile line of the old Overhead Railway; family walks through attractive areas of the city and suburbs and architectural walks to discover the city's rich heritage of buildings.

LiverpoolLiverpool 800: Character, Culture and History Ancestry and origin fascinate America. Study of the genealogy of this rich and diverse nation establishes a seldom recognized fact: the importance of Liverpool in its foundation. As the leading European port of migration to America millions of emigrants flowed down the quayside of Liverpool docks in search of new adventures on the other side of the Atlantic; as the world's leading slave port Liverpool also played a part in the forced upheaval of less willing migrants. Liverpool was also a centre for international fundraising and espionage during the US Civil War and was the Headquarters of the Atlantic command, controlling British and American shipping under attack in the Second World War. More recently the City's influence on America has been cultural: the birthplace of the Beatles, home of one of the world's most famous soccer teams, and surprisingly, its streets are a frequent double for the US in both British and American made movies. The City of New York was awarded the prestigious Freedom of the City of Liverpool in 2003, and Liverpool has official friendship links with both Memphis and New Orleans. In anticipation of the City's 800th anniversary in 2007, "Liverpool 800" is the definitive biography of this magnificent world city. The book uses the latest historical research to explore the life of Liverpool over eight centuries right up to the present day, and includes detailed sections on politics, economy, and culture.
