London has for most of 2000 years been the hub of the political, economic, and cultural life of the British Isles. No other city has held such a dominant national position for so long. This new study, by the doyen of London historians, describes London's diverse past, from its origins as aRoman settlement at the first bridging of the Thames to the world-class metropolis it is today. It provides a vivid account of a city which was the 'deere sweete' place which Chaucer loved more than any other city on earth, which was for Dickens his 'magic lantern', and to Keats 'a great sea',howling for more wrecks. It is also a story of much contrast and remarkable resilience; through great fires and pestilence, civil war, and the Blitz, London has rebuilt and reinvented itself for each generation.

Die Stimmung in der Londoner Bohème-Bar "Bacchus" ist getrübt. Nicht nur weil Hitler ganz Europa in einen Krieg stürzen will. Viel schwerer wiegt die grausame Ermordung eines zehnjährigen jüdischen Mädchens aus der Nachbarschaft und der Verdacht, dass der Mörder höchstwahrscheinlich einer der Stammgäste ist. Die Polizei tappt im Dunkeln. Detective Inspector Dick Turpin spult sein Routineprogramm herunter, doch das ist der exzentrischen Powerfrau und eigensinnigen Sozialreformerin Asta Thundersley nicht genug. Sie ermittelt auf eigene Faust und beschließt, dem Täter eine Falle zu stellen... Gerald Kershs grandiose Mixtur aus Polizeiroman, Psychothriller und nihilistischem Noir zählt zu den Klassikern des Genres. Er erzählt von gescheiterten Existenzen und den Tücken des Lebens und veranschaulicht, wie viele Verlierer für einen Gewinner auf der Strecke bleiben.

London 2: South is a uniquely comprehensive guide to the twelve southern boroughs. Its riverside buildings range from the royal splendours of Hampton Court and Greenwich and the Georgian delights of Richmond, to the monuments of Victorian commerce in Lambeth and Southwark. But the book also charts lesser known suburbs, from former villages such as Clapham to still rural, Edwardian Chislehurst, as well as the results of twentieth-century planners' dreams from Roehampton to Thamesmead. Full accounts are given of London landmarks as diverse as Southwark Cathedral, Soane's Dulwich Picture Gallery and the arts complex of the South Bank. The outer boroughs include diverse former country houses - Edward IV's Eltham Palace, the Jacobean Charlton House, and the Palladian Marble Hill. The rich Victorian churches and school buildings are covered in detail, as are the exceptional structures of Kew Gardens.

London and the Culture of Homosexuality explores the relationship between London and male homosexuality from the criminalization of all 'acts of gross indecency' between men in 1885 to the outbreak of the First World War in 1914 - years marked by an intensification in concern about male-male relationships and also by the emergence of an embryonic homosexual rights movement. Taking his cue from literary and lesbian and gay scholars, urban historians and cultural geographers, Matt Cook combines discussion of London's homosexual subculture and various major and minor scandals with a detailed examination of representations in the press, in science and in literature. The conjunction of approaches used in this study provides insights into the development of ideas about the modern homosexual and into the many different ways of comprehending and taking part in London's culture of homosexuality.

Schwere Schneeflocken tanzen in der Dämmerung, als Emily Laing das erste Mal London nicht mehr findet. Doch wie kann das sein? Eine ganze Stadt verschwindet doch nicht einfach so. Mitsamt all ihren Schornsteinen, Bewohnern und Geheimnissen. Hat das vielleicht etwas mit den beiden seltsamen alten Damen zu tun, die Emily entführen? Oder hängt es mit dem Waisenmädchen zusammen, das plötzlich auf den Stufen einer U-Bahn-Rolltreppe auftaucht?
