Of all the changes that nineteenth century capitalism introduced into Western society, none was more profound than the rise of the modern metropolis. Never before in human history had so many people been gathered together in so fragmented and yet so regulated a fashion. The dislocation and disorientation that the rise of the metropolis provoked were the source of powerful poetic and theoretical insights into the nature of the human condition. For social theorists and political activists the city became a place for dreams: dreams of rebellion, dreams of revolution, dreams of enrichment, dreams of liberty, but most of all dreams of community. It is this place of dreams that unites the writers in this book. Writers such as Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Ferdinand Toennies, Georg Simmel, Emile Durkheim, Walter Benjamin, Frank Park, Louis Wirth, Max Weber, Georg Lukacs, Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno directed their theoretical imagination to the human consequences of urbanization and modernization. Chorney surveys the work of these writers and assesses the implications of their work for a contemporary theory of the modern metropolis and its problems of crime, loneliness, decline of community and political stagnation.
