Opening his story on the muddy riverbank of the Stone Age settlement, [the author] takes the reader through every epoch of the city's history--the Roman town Emperor Julian called his "beloved Lucretia"; the early Christian capital of Clovis and Clotilda; the plague-infested alleys of the Middle Ages; the brilliant salons of the Enlightenment; the bloody epicenter of the 1789 revolution; the dazzling, fevered nineteenth-century city of the Impressionists; the prosperous contemporary capital, reeling beneath the weight of its historical past; and the city at the future of the heart of Europe. -Dust jacket.
