Abstract: Perth has been well served by its historians. C.T. Stannage’s "The People of Perth" (1979), a pioneering urban social history, covered the period to World War I, with a summary of developments into the 1970s. His work, because of ‘its sheer honesty did not win universal approval’. Jenny Gregory, following a lively prologue summarising the interwar years, concentrates on the period of rapid growth following World War II. She has been equally forthright. To their credit, the incumbent lord mayors welcomed the publication of both works. A brief review cannot do justice to a remarkable work. The author handles her material deftly, and the publishers have maintained their usual excellent standards.
