Great Liverpudlians: A Fascinating Journey Through the City's History and the People Who Made It

by David Charters - £8.95  Carnegie Publishing Ltd (Palatine Books) (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781874181705 | ISBN 10: 1874181705

This is a Liverpool history with a difference. Packed with information, this lively book is not only about events but about people – our Great Liverpudlians – and the part they each played in shaping the city. There are many familiar faces, of course, but they stand shoulder to shoulder with the ordinary men and women who have made Liverpool what it is. And as well as bringing the unsung heroes and their interesting lives to our attention, Daily Post columnist David Charters has also dug deep to unearth less well known details about those famous names we all thought we knew everything about.
 
Great Liverpudlians takes the reader on a wonderfully enjoyable journey through the city’s past, introducing us to an array of colourful characters, from kings and politicians, to philanthropists, poets, musicians, comedians, sportsmen and women, barrow girls and clergy.
 
All human life is here, as they say, and what is any great city if not the sum of its people?
