The World's First Cities were created when three forces converged: the emergence of states and god kingship; the ability to plan, design and build monumental complexes; and the desire to match the rhythms of life on earth and the movements of the heavens. Convergence occurred at different times in each region that invented cities. In this insightful book, Brian Berry tells the story of this timing and discusses the planned cities that were created.
