First impressions
How did it begin?
Where did it begin?
Common threads
War, Greece, and Rome
The works of giants mouldereth away
In the name of God and for profit
Prince's capital and merchants' city
By what complicated wheels
The city found wanting
The impact of numbers
Cities built on water
Turn to the Sun
Eternal problems
The greatness of princes
Capturing the horizon
"The city here, complete"
Accomodating politics
Visions and opportunities
We tread too heavily
