"It was once the seat of the world's mightiest empire and the most populous city on the planet, while the list of historical figures, notable personalities, and literary, artistic, musical, and dramatic talents who have called it home is simply staggering." From Jonathan Oates' Unsolved London Murders: The 1920s & 1930s to the photo book A Century of Royalty (culled from the pages of the Daily Mirror) to Jane Austen's London to PBS's Secrets of Underground London to Peter Ackroyd's London Under, there's something for everyone in the Daedalus Books Spotlight on the great metropolis of London.
