The book begins with 14 essays by major British scholars on aspects of urban life, from the Coronation of George IV to the rise of popular radicalism in political and economic thought. London nourished a wide variety of aspirations; its art, theater, and economic achievements in this 40-year span were notable. The remainder of this large work is devoted to the actual exhibition catalog.
