Captivating...The Flaneur offers the reader fascinating insights into the dynamics of modernity. What the bricoleur was to the cultural theory of an earlier generation, The Flaneur will be to the cultural theory of the '90's.
–Constance Classen, Harvard University
The Flaneur is a major contribution to our historical understanding of urban and cultural sociology as well as conducting what has been, and continues to be, a fascinating way of seeing, experiencing and imagining modernity.
