The Imperial MetropolisBook - 1999
In 1900 London was the greatest city on earth. This book examines its power and influence at the turn of the century and investigates its relationship with Britain's far-flung empire. Schneer concludes that it is the people of London who made their city and continually remade and reshaped it - as they continue to do today.
