Summary
"C̀ity Life grabs you by collar and draws you deep into the sensuous heartland of the western cityscape. Franklin means "life" literally. This is not only an account of the human hopes, desires, obsessions and follies that animate bricks and mortar, but of all the diverse creatures that join in the urban adventure. Rattling along with the pace and eloquence of good novel, you hardly realise how much social and urban theory you are taking in along the way. This is what learning should be like'. Nigel Clark, Open University" "À sweeping treatment of cities from Roman to contemporary times, this book highlights the powerful forces that shape cities - transforming them from traditional cities of culture and commerce, to modernist cities of industry and work, to today's post-modern cities of spectacle and consumerism - and just on the horizon - to cities of ecological integrity and human-animal coexistence for which we all long.' Jennifer Wolch, University of California, Berkeley" "Cities are more important as cultural entities than mere dormitories and industrial sites. Yet, the understanding of what makes a city àlive' and appealing in cultural terms is still hotly contested - why are some cities so much more interesting, popular and successful than others?" "In this engaging discussion of c̀ity life' Adrian Franklin takes the reader on a tour of contemporary western cities exploring their historical development and arguing that it is the transformative, ritual and performative qualities of successful cities that makes a difference." "Emphasising the importance of experience the book represents the fluid complexity of the city as a living space, an environment and a posthumanist space of transformation. It will be of interest to all those engaging with the difficulties of urban life in Sociology, human geography, tourism and cultural studies departments."--BOOK JACKET
