Book Description

5 Nov 2007 Times (Times Books)

This new 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 new edition is the perfect companion for both the Londoner and the lover of London alike

Contents include:

Land under London
Roman London
Anglo-Saxon and Norman London
Medieval London
Tudor and Stuart London
Georgian London
Victorian London
London between the wars
Post-war London
London themes
Places in London

Review

"The text is brimming with absorbing and comprehensive historical narrative, the most recent archaeological findings, fascinating photographs, and a wealth of statistics and maps. Fully recommended." Now & Then, March 2008

“a lavishly illustrated and totally engrossing look at the history of our capital over the past 2,000 years… a real delight." Ham & High, 25th October 2007

From the Back Cover

Arranged in a clear chronological narrative accompanied by a wealth of maps, charts, illustrations and photographs, 'The Times History of London' is a vivid and compelling celebration of one of the world’s great cities. Its themes are as diverse as they are relevant, covering social and economic conditions, transport and trade, leisure, education and religion. The book traces London’s history from the earliest evidence of human settlement over 40,000 years ago to the present day.

The Times History of London is a truly superb book. I bought it and could not put it down. Each page takes you on a voyage of discovery and tells you things you never knew about the history and social development of this amazing capital city. Absolutely brilliant 10 out of 10, a real MUST HAVE title!

5.0 out of 5 stars The London story we have been waiting for 3 Dec 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not just history, but the importance of London's geography in its growth as the leading world city.

Up until now there has been a lack of a good synopsis of London's past.

And a great coffee table book to pick up and browse.

These books are amazing - unfortunately the kindle edition only goes up to the Tudors. So you should buy the physical book if you want a proper survey of London with all of the brilliantly written and concise chapters. I have no idea why it only goes up to the Tudors, very frustrating.
