This incomparable volume sparkles with spectacular panoramic photographs. From the sentinels of ancient Jerusalem, Athens, and Rome, to the medieval steeples of Munich and Budapest, to the magnificence of Renaissance Florence and Venice, each city's contemporary skyline is beautifully juxtaposed with its historic foundations. Complementing these images are historical photographs and bird's-eye-view maps reflecting each city's distinct character. Guiding this spectacular tour within Skylines of the World: Yesterday and Today is the well-traveled historian M. Hill Goodspeed who walks the reader through the key architectural developments of each city, from New York to Hong Kong.
