In the book Alex Marshall investigates how geological features; archaeological remnants of past civilizations; and layered networks transporting water, electricity, and people have shaped these cities through centuries of political turbulence and advancements in engineering - and how they are determining the course of the cities' future. From the first-century catacombs of Rome, the New York subway system, and the swamps and ancient quays beneath London, to San Francisco's fault lines, the depleted aquifer under Mexico City, and Mao Tse-tung's extensive network of secret tunnels belowBeijing, these subterranean environments offer a unique cross-section of a city's history. **** A LARGE HEAVY VOLUME OF 0.885 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST ****
