Synopsis

Author : Hugh Clout.

This edition is as vibrant, compelling and diverse as the infamous city itself.

An established authority on London past and present, The Times History of London presents a captivating picture of London - how it was, how it is now, and how it will be in the future.

Ranging from the creation of London by the Romans almost 2,000 years ago to the impact the forthcoming 2012 Olympics will have on the physical, economical and cultural fabric of London, the contents are both satisfyingly thorough and refreshingly varied.

The text is brimming with absorbing and comprehensive historical narrative, the most recent archaeological findings, fascinating photographs, and a wealth of statistics and maps. It comprises the most complete and inviting rendering of the history of London to date.

Lavishly presented and historically accurate, this edition is the perfect companion for both the Londoner and the lover of London alike.
