Beautifully crafted, imaginative editions of the world’s great works of fiction and non-fiction, Folio Society books offer a rich literary experience to readers of all ages. The books selected for publication are timeless – they will be enjoyed and appreciated now and in the future. Because each book is considered as an individual object of value in its own right, there is a variety to our aesthetic – the only uniformity is in the quality of every single book.
This is a chronological study of the world's cities, ranging from Thebes to Sydney and Rome to Moscow. The book traces the foundations and developments in human civilizations, looking at their differences and similarities worldwide, their archaeological roots and their modern blossoming.
From Thebes, Jerusalem, and Athens to New York, London, Sydney, Amsterdam, Moscow, and Berlin, Cities and Civilizations explores the world's great cities and their golden ages. Famed historian Christopher Hibbert vividly brings each city to life -- its moments of power and prestige, of cultural ferment and political dominance -- providing a panoramic sweep encompassing almost four thousand years.
