Summary
Byzantium, Constantinople, Istanbul-- one city, where stories and histories collide. The gateway between East and West, North and South, it has been the capital city of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman Empires. Hughes takes us on an historical journey from the Neolithic to the present, exploring the ways that Istanbul's influence has spun out to shape the wider world. This is the story not just of emperors, viziers, caliphs, and sultans, but of the poor and the voiceless, of the women and men whose aspirations and dreams have continuously reinvented Istanbul
Summary
A historian describes the history of one of the world’s greatest and oldest cities, which has held three different names and has played host to Phoenicians, Genoese, Venetians, Jews, Vikings and Azeris who all called it home
