John Freely has explored, loved and illuminated his adopted city of Istanbul for forty-three years. Author of the best-selling Strolling Through Istanbul , he has written more than thirty books on the history and topography of the city. To walk the streets, to climb the hills, to visit the mosques and palaces of Istanbul with Freely is to learn first-hand the multi-faceted history of the New Rome, and of the Turkish Imperial capital that succeeded it. Here, he looks afresh at the city with which he has been intimately connected for nearly half a century. Stunningly illustrated with contemporary photographs and far-ranging historical material, John Freely's Istanbul is the summation of the passion and knowledge of the city's greatest modern biographer.
