The historian examines how London coped with a series of disastrous events in the 17th century, including the Great Fire, the Plague and the Civil War, and became one of Europe's most powerful cities. He uses information from surveys taken by chroniclers at the beginning and end of the century to explore the qualities that enabled Londoners to thrive, and explains how events of the period laid the foundations for the English capital's success.
