Description

A new history of one of the greatest cities in the world by an internationally acclaimed historian Alistair Horne takes the history of the city and breaks it down to seven distinct ages, with a foreword taking in Julius Caesar to Philip-Augustus, the great rival of Richard the Lionheart, and an epilogue taking in France since 1968. In between, Horne tells the huge and romantic story of a city constantly in turmoil and change in the middle ages, through the 100 years war, the Paris of Louis XIV, Napoleon, the Commune, the Empire days of Louis-Napoleon and Eugenie, the First World War and De Gaulle. He interweaves historical narrative with telling detail, and social and cultural history. This is destined to be a defintive work on the subject by one of the great historians of France.
