Overview

An engaging account of the rise and dominance of the City of London, arguably the most important phenomenon of British history in the last 300 years. 'The City today is the most dynamic and world-beating sector of the British economy. Increasingly, it is the City that calls the shots. More than ever, governments and industry are constrained in their conduct by the fear of the judgement of the financial markets. This book looks back over the past 20 years and examines the extraordinary rise of this economic entity that is the City of London.
