From the Walled City to New TownsBook - 2006
London: From the Walled City to New Towns examines the political demarcations that helped form the London of today. From its founding as a Roman outpost to the present, London s history has been affected by arbitrary borders, including those of a territorial, imperial, cultural, economic, and social cast. Although geographical borders may reflect and affirm the cultural, ethnic, or linguistic perimeters that define a people or country, this volume explores how the migration of goods, resources, and people work to undermine the separation.
