Each of the chapters represents the metropolis through a thematic consideration of the urban infrastructure and architecture including public open spaces, new roads and bridges, public monuments, and buildings for show including museums, galleries and townhouses.

These discrete walks around London cohere into a kaleidoscopic view of the metropolis as a continually evolving entity. The nature and perception of urban experience and social life are mapped against this changing image of London, revealing at once the modernity of the metropolis and the importance of the past - especially antiquity - to the construction of this transient present.
