Recenzii

A careful historian's vision of a man's metropolitan history. There are 68 cities here included. Each is accorded a short chapter written by contributors.... The cities under discussion range from the primordial Uruk to modern monsters like Sao Paulo, taking in, along the way, a host of conurbations from the ancient, the medieval, and the early modern periods... Packed with such savory detail, relayed by writers and historians who appear to eat, sleep and breathe their cities.
