No city has had as powerful and as enduring an impact on Western civilization as London. Throughout its vast and riveting history, London
was the capital of a powerful empire that covered one-fifth of the worlds landmass and one-quarter of its population;
was the headquarters of a constitutional monarchy with more elements of democracy and popular participation than any Western country before the United States;
was the economic center of Europe both during and after the Industrial Revolution, serving as its financial center, its banking center, and its largest port;
spearheaded innovative modern solutions (including public institutions and municipal police forces) to universal human ills such as crime, disease, and poverty;
was the site of historical political movements that led to wider government reform, including the fight for womens suffrage;
was the home to some of historys greatest individuals, including William Shakespeare, Queen Victoria, and Winston Churchill; and
served as the last bastion of freedom in Europe against the onslaught of the Nazis in World War II.
Londons greatness continues to this day. The city stands as a global metropolitan center and continues to be synonymous with important developments in international business, culture, and politics.

But why London? What made the city the perfect environment for all these great political, social, and cultural developments? How did this city endure sweeping historical revolutions and disasters without crumbling? And what about its citizens-what exactly defines a Londoner, both in the past and today?
