From the prehistoric occupants of the Thames Valley to the preoccupied commuters of today - and drawing on his experience of and involvement in the events that shaped the post-war city - Simon Jenkins masterfully explains the battles that built London. With his trademark colour and authority, he shows how the site of a perennial conflict between money, power and people has taken shape over more than two thousand years. Fascinating for locals and visitors alike, this is narrative history at its finest.
