The Danish Centre for Urban History has made several publications about urban history in the three series of publications: Danish Urban Studies (Danske Bystudier), Writings on Danish Urban History (Skrifter om Dansk Byhistorie) and Digital Writings (Den digitale udgivelsesrække). Usually our books are published in Danish but often with English summaries, which can be seen by clicking on the titles below.
