Standing as the gateway between the East and West, Istanbul has served as the capital of the Roman, Byzantine, Latin and Ottoman Empires. As the longest-lived political entity in Europe, over the last 6,000 years it has absorbed a mosaic of micro-cities and cultures and has always been a place where stories and histories collide and crackle, where the idea is as potent as the historical fact. From the Qu'ran to Shakespeare, this city with three names - Byzantium, Constantinople, Istanbul - resonates as an idea and a place,. Betttany Hughes tells the story of the city through it's many incarnations.
