THE CITY A Global History

by | Read by Nelson Runger

History • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Kotkin provides a thorough and detailed account of cities from ancient Mesopotamia to New York City, tracing how the concept of the city has influenced history and how history has influenced the evolution of the city. Nelson Runger guides listeners with a steady voice that keeps a good rhythm throughout what could be a drab text. He delivers each sentence with warmth, proving his comfort with the dense material while helping listeners who may be overwhelmed by the speed at which the author moves from city to city. Though more a litany of facts than a historical narrative, this book proves more digestible and engaging through the addition of Runger.
