Dr Matthew Green explores the sights and sounds of London through history This is a fascinating and uniue guide to the capital that takes the reader off the beaten track and into unexplored territory This book allows the reader to travel through time to six key periods in the history of London Fr SO good Absolutely brilliant in fact I'm pretty stingy with my 5 star reviews but there's no uestion about this one surely a contender for my book of 2015I've read a fair few 'time traveller' history guides This one is a little different in that it takes us to the same place and sometimes the same streets over 6 different years These are 1390 1603 1665 1716 1884 and 1957 so for example we get to witness Shakespeare's London some of the horrors of the Plague in the 17th century and a taste of the huge monster London has become in Victorian timesI thought I'd like the earlier periods of history best but the 1957 chapter was superb in that it captured a city still recovering from the Blitz bomb sites everywhere but already showing the first signs of the colourful psychedelic period to comeThe whole time travel idea is brilliant executed Green writes like an absolute dream I know it's a cliché to say this is history brought alive but I'm going to say it anyway I've never heard of Dr Matthew Green before but the book jacket shows a surprisingly young man Great Plenty of time for him to get cracking with plenty books like this De l'action pénale en droit musulman, rite hanefite little different in that it takes us to the same place and sometimes the same streets over 6 different years These are 1390 1603 1665 1716 1884 and 1957 so for example we get to witness Shakespeare's London some of the horrors of the Plague in the 17th century and a taste of the huge monster London has become in Victorian timesI thought I'd Les Mères des croyants like the earlier periods of history best but the 1957 chapter was superb in that it captured a city still recovering from the Blitz bomb sites everywhere but already showing the first signs of the colourful psychedelic period to comeThe whole time travel idea is brilliant executed Green writes Les Statuts gouvernementaux ou règles de droit public et administratif like an absolute dream I know it's a cliché to say this is history brought alive but I'm going to say it anyway I've never heard of Dr Matthew Green before but the book jacket shows a surprisingly young man Great Plenty of time for him to get cracking with plenty books Droit et environnement social au Maghreb like this
