Lets Go 2002 London : City Guide (Let's Go. London)
by D. Jonathan Dawid (Editor)

Before I travel anywhere especially in Europe I usually pick up a 'Let's Go' guide. Inevitably, though, I get seduced by one or more of the flashier, slicker looking books, all of which wind up sitting around unused. In the years I've traveled, there's never been one thing I could think of that the 'Let's Go' books didn't address. Do yourself a favor pick up 'Let's Go London'.

London BiographyLondon: the Biography
by Peter Ackroyd

Ackroyd's London is no mere chronology. Its chapters take on such varied themes as drinking, sex, childhood, crime and punishment, sewage, food, fire, maps, theatre and war. We learn that gin was "the demon of London for half a century", and that "it has been estimated that in the 1740s there were 17,000 'gin-houses'." "A 14-year-old boy, only 18 inches high, was to be seen in 1702 at a grocer's shop." By the mid 19th century "London had become known as the greatest city on earth." By 1939 "one in five of the British population had become a Londoner."
