From the origins of urbanisation in Mesopotamia to the global metropolises of today, there's something to pique everybody's interest in The Great Cities in History. Great cities have marked the development of human civilisation - from Memphis to Tokyo, from Uruk to São Paulo, this book tells the stories of cities evoked by a team of distinguished contributors. Each city's character is evoked through an analysis of its art, its architecture and its people. Richly illustrated with photographs, paintings, maps and plans, this book is nothing less than a portrait of world civilisation.
