Great cities are complex, chaotic and colossal, but some have dominated the world stage and become places where world history is made. Here the author of Rise and Fall journeys back to discover Babylonian mathematics, Athenian theatre and intellectual debate, and Roman construction that has lasted millennia.

Other cities discussed here include Istanbul, New York, Mumbai, and Beijing
