Charles Dickens describes in Night Walks his time as an insomniac, when he
decided to cure himself by walking through London in the small hours, and
discovered homelessness, drunkenness and vice on the streets. This
collection of essays shows Dickens as one of the greatest visionaries of
the city in all its variety and cruelty. GREAT IDEAS. Throughout history,
some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see
ourselves � and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and
revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They
have enriched lives � and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works
of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook
civilization and helped make us who we are.
