Elvira Baryakina How do you like this one? The topic seems interesting.

Daniel Very good. It looks at cities through the method of case studies. It asks why some cities had a golden age and how it happened. Golden ages in the arts, culture, economics, innovation...It looks at social and cultural history through the prism of city evolution starting with Athens, the mother of democracy, philosophy,free speech, modern theater. As a writer I suppose it could trigger some interesting ideas for plots and context....
