ParisBook - 2004
Paris is considered by many to be the fashion capital of the world. The city's sophisticated style, coupled with its reputation as a center of learning and culture, has earned Paris the name "City of Light." Its strong sense of history is evident through its many historic palaces, monuments, and museums, but the city also embraces the new with bold, modern architecture and a constantly evolving culture influenced by the many immigrants from France's former colonies. Great Cities of the World explores what makes Paris a truly fascinating city. Book jacket.
