520    "Paris and London have long held a mutual fascination, and
       never more so than in the period 1750-1914, when they vied
       to be the world's greatest city. Each city has been the 
       focus of many books, yet Jonathan Conlin here explores the
       complex relationship between them for the first time. The 
       reach and influence of both cities was such that the story
       of their rivalry has global implications. By borrowing, 
       imitating and learning from each other Paris and London 
       invented the true metropolis. Tales of Two Cities examines
       and compares five urban spaces-the pleasure garden, the 
       cemetery, the apartment, the restaurant and the music hall
       -that defined urban modernity in the nineteenth century. 
       The citizens of Paris and London first created these 
       essential features of the modern cityscape and so defined 
       urban living for all of us"--|cProvided by publisher.
