Abstract

Book synopsis: No city has a more dramatic history than London: fire, plague, riots, civil war, and mass bombings have shaken its spirit, but never brought it down. This extraordinary story unfolds here through a combination of artifacts, maps, documents, paintings, photographs, and unparalleled writing. From its origins as a remote outpost of Rome's northern empire to its position as the lynchpin of the British Empire to its role as a source of inspiration for Shakespeare and Dickens, London is a great city filled with stories of mayhem, glory, power, wealth, and fame.
