Abstract

This book explores connections between culture, economy and built environment drawing evidence mainly from London, New York and Toronto. It discusses the cultural experience of modernity and the material modernization of cities, placing emphasis on their historical geographies, on the production, representation and use of urban space. It presents new ways of seeing cities in political and religious discourse, social and private space, such as apartment buildings, office blocks and department stores, and networks of communication between them. - (HC)
