Theories of the city have been fundamental to the development of modernism and postmodernism, and are increasingly important in the fields of cultural studies and visual culture.

Jenny Bavidge focuses on the work of three leading city theorists - Benjamin, Lefebvre and de Certeau - whose work represents key schools of thought or emphases within the areas of cultural geography, urban studies and spatial theory.

Theorists of the City is essential reading to further explore issues of locality, social space, architecture and urban aesthetics; key ideas discussed through the work of these three thinkers include:

  • flaneurie
  • situationism
  • psychogeography
  • heterotopia.
