The author traces the evolution of towns, from the primitive cave-shrines and burial tombs of palaeolithic man to the sprawling megalopolis of today. This book is both a panoramic overview and an analysis of the city in all its glorious manifestations: the arts, architecture, crafts, religions, laws, pastimes and politics that created, and are created by the city.
