    Description
    From Classical Greece and Rome to medieval and Renaissance Europe, from Hogarth's London to the metropolis of today, cities have been at the centre of human existence for thousands of years.

    By examining individual cities at their most pivotal moments in history, and the way people lived in them, Richard Sennett traces changing attitudes to concepts such as space, burial, sanctuary and planning. He provides fascinating insights into the interaction between the human body and the spaces of the city it inhabits, evoking the sounds, smells and bustle throughout the centuries. And he asks whether modern cities starve people's sensual experience.
