About the Book
As is often the case with sprawling world cities, most of us tend to limit our knowledge of London’s history to its great buildings and the popular tourist attractions. But the story of a city can be also be found in the most inconspicuous of places – in the narrowest streets and unexplored alleys, in the very contour of the landscape, even in the ground beneath our feet. A Short History of London aims to bring this fact to life, and in doing so, help readers to appreciate what has made London the city it is today.
This is the first in a series of concise yet comprehensive e-books which deal exclusively with the history of world cities. The next title will be A Short History of Dublin, followed by A Short History of Paris and A Short History of Rome.
