    Pan Macmillan 2010; US$ 14.88

    No one knows a city like the people who live there - so who better to relate the history of Paris than its inhabitants through the ages? Taking us from 1750 to the new millennium, Graham Robb's Parisians is at once a book to read from cover to cover, to lose yourself in, to dip in and out of at leisure, and a book to return to again and again -... more...

    Pan Macmillan 2017; US$ 20.30
