Summary
"Cities of the World is a highly original book, which holds up a mirror to some of the world's greatest cities. It traces their historic structure and unique character through maps and panoramic views produced over the centuries. Illustrating the classical city-state, the medieval fortress, the baroque capital and the industrial metropolis, the images show how the architectural form and the social life of our cities have been shaped - not only by their geographical setting, but also by religion, royal power, commerce, social ideals and occasionally by artistic vision." - inside front cover
