    Product description
    There have been many attacks on the City of London and its Livery Companies. Why have these institutions aroused such controversy - and why have they weathered so many storms? Ian Doolittle traces the 'Great Refusal' to incorporate the suburbs in the 17th century through to the implications of the Greater London Authority (and the elected mayor) for the City's future. The first edition was widely praised. This second edition includes a chapter dealing with the controversy surrounding the City elections system.
