In this volume, the theme of early-modern European urban migration is explored through a series of historical contexts. Each chapter demonstrates how the presence of diverse and often temporary groups of migrants was a core feature of everyday urban life, and explores the ways in which city authorities attempted to control the moral, political, religious and economic life of these newcomers.
