The 50 key visions, events and architects that shaped the city, each explained in half a minute.
If you are tired of London, are you really tired of life? 30-Second London agrees with Dr. Johnson s famous statement, taking the history of one of the most diverse cities on Earth and looking at the forces that shaped it, from the first traces of a Neanderthal settlement on the banks of the River Thames to today s vast and varied metropolis.
Along the way, readers will discover underground London, secret London, suburban London, and much more, on a revealing whistlestop city tour.
