From the walled city of Jericho built over 10,000 years ago to the modern-day metropolises of Tokyo and San Francisco, discover how 25 cities from across history and around the planet have impacted the world we live in.

With vibrant artwork throughout and featuring 25 unique and carefully researched city maps, find out what life was really like for the people who lived there. Take an awe-inspiring tour around the ancient past to the near future – explore Athens in ancient Greece during the birth of democracy, walk the lamp-lit streets of Benin deep in the West African rainforest, or even discover what life was like in China’s long-lost capital city of Xianyang.
