This book explains how towns and cities have been shaped by applications of a range of technologies , and the influence of politics, economics, culture and environment. Cities covered include: Babylon, Thebes, Athens, Rome, Constantinople, Florence, Paris, Amsterdam, Mexico City, and Beijing. Containing few line drawing and photographs, it is a good addition to students' personal libraries..
