A compulsively readable collection of all the nastiest things that have afflicted mankind
UK Kirkus Review » Boudicca started off London's colourful history when in AD61, feeling mightily angry with the Romans, she marched on the 10-year-old city and burned it to the ground. No one knew it, but that was to be just the catalyst for centuries of upheaval in England's capital city. Since then there have been nearly 2000 years of disaster ranging from disease to enemy action, taking in along the way such diversions as the Great Fire, riots and freaks of nature including hurricanes and earthquakes. Through it all the Londoners have bounced back, and this revealing book is as much about the people's spirit as it is the city's greatness as a national centre. Even a casual walk around London today reveals the legacy of tempestuous times but ultimately of survival. Withington's book takes a fond but hair-raising look at London and its people over many centuries.(Kirkus UK)
