The history of London is bound up with the infamous river that flows through its centre. The Thames has witnessed the rise and fall of an Empire. The births and deaths of bloodthirsty rulers. And the rapid evolution of a thriving metropolis. It is both the giver of life to the city and the bringer of destruction. It was a centre of trade and allowed people to travel. But it also brought pollution and sewage from upstream, caused floods, and its inky blackness has been a heart-breaking siren call to suicides.
Anthony Galvin ist ein britischer Journalist und Autor von Krimis und historischen Sachbüchern. “It takes a broad view on the history of London rather than an in depth one so I would highly recommend it to readers looking for a crash course in history.” (Leserin) (7 Rezensionen / 3,9 Sterne), 299 Seiten noch günstig?
