Renowned historian J.J. Norwich profiles 40 important urban centers of the ancient world, reminding us that they were once state-of-the-art metropolises. He divides his picks into five sections: Near East (including Ur, Babylon, Troy and Jerusalem), Africa (Thebes and Amerna), Europe (Athens, Rome, Trier), Asia (Mohenjodaro, Xianyang) and the Americas (Caral, Teotihuacan). A fascinating exploration of the origins of urbanism and human culture.
