Summary
Historian White (Birkbeck, U. of London, UK) writes with gusto about an exuberant era. He has arranged this history thematically in sections on the city, people, work, culture, and power. Each chapter is devoted to the writings or other contributions--to the "London"--of a prominent figure. Among those considered: James Gibbs, Robert Adam, Samuel Johnson, William Beckford, Teresa Cornely, Jonas Hanway, and John Wilkes--among others.
