Description:

Istanbul has always been a place where stories and histories collide and crackle, where narrative and perception is as potent as hard, historical fact. From the Qu'ran to Shakespear, this city with three names - Byzantium, Constantinople, Istanbul - resonates as an idea and as a place, and overspills its boundaries - real and imagined. The gateway between the East, West, North and South, it has served as the capital of the Late Roman, Byzantine, Latina and Ottoman Empires. For much of its history this cosmopolitan settlement was known simply as The City, but, as Bettany Hughes reveals, Istanbul is not just a city, but a global story.
