City of London - The History
From its rise to prominence in the early 18th century through to its precarious global heights of today, David Kynaston gives a definitive history of the ‘Square Mile’, London’s financial powerhouse. With stories of great bankers and brokers as well as young clerks and others who have filled the offices in the City, this talk looks at the booms, busts and bankruptcies as well as the unique culture of the Square Mile. David Kynaston is a historian and author whose many books include the highly acclaimed Austerity Britain 1945-51, The Financial Times: A Centenary History as well as the four-volume The City of London now available in a single volume.
