Richard A. Tomlinson analyzes the development of the city by examining the architectural remains of urban centers in the Greek and Roman world. He shows how the city is an architectural response to the social organization and varying political systems of its inhabitants. Tomlinson shows how cities served as a base for imperial authority and discusses the circumstances surrounding the creation of a New-Rome for the Christian Empire at Constantinople.
