Benjamin Franklin secretly loved London more than Philadelphia: it was simply the most exciting place to be in the British Empire. Offering a portrait of eighteenth-century London as the capital of America, this title recreates the famous city's heyday as the centre of an empire that encompassed North America and the West Indies.
