About this product
- DescriptionAlmost everyone has a neighbour. Neighbours can enrich or ruin our lives. They fascinate and worry us in equal measure. Soap operas watched by millions play with every lurid permutation of relationships in fictional neighbourhoods. Disputes over gigantic Leylandii and ise nuisance turn nasty and fill newspaper columns. These stories have a rich history - as long as we have lived in shelters, we have had neighbours. Emily Cockayne traces the story of the British neighbour through nine centuries - spanning Medieval, Tudor and Victorian periods, two world wars and up to today's modern, virtual world. Cheek by Jowl is social history at its most colourful and compelling and puts the people back in the houses and the houses back on the streets.
- Author BiographyEmily Cockayne graduated with a first class degree in History from Girton College, Cambridge in 1994 and moved to Jesus College, Cambridge for postgraduate studies. Emily was awarded a doctorate for her thesis 'A cultural history of sound in England 1560-1760' in 2000, a year after being elected to a Prize Fellowship in Modern History at Magdalen College, Oxford. In January 2003 she became an Associate Lecturer for the Open University. She lives in Norwich with her husband and two children.
