From the Back Cover

London is one of the greatest historic cities of the modern world. Once the hub of the British empire and the world’s biggest port, it is still one of Europe’s principal business and financial centres and is home to the oldest parlimentary systems and the world’s most famous monarchy. As the capital turns its face towards the 21st century, this new edition of London’s most complete and illuminating history looks both back and forward, providing fresh insights into the city’s past and the challenges which face it in the future.

Arranged in a clear chronological order, with a concise and lucide narrative and over 300 maps and illustrations, The Times History of London traces the history of London from the earliest evidence of human habitation 40,000 years ago to the city in the 21st century.

The coverage is as diverse as it is relevant. Under the direction of Professor Hugh Clout of University College London, this new edition has been compiled by a team of over 20 leading archaeologists, historians and geographers, making it a visual and narrative feast and an indispensable companion to the Londoner and lover of London alike.

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!

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.

A beautiful book. I had to buy one after glancing at a copy in the reading corner of our local hostelry.
There are plenty of interesting illustrations and Clout provides detailed insight into an endlessly fascinating city.

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.
