Timely and original, this collection of essays from the leading figures in their fields throws new and valuable light on the significance and future of flânerie. The flâneur is usually identified as the ‘man of the crowd’ of Edgar Allen Poe and Charles Baudelaire, and as one of the heroes of Walter Benjamin’s Arcades Project. The flâneur’s activities of strolling and loitering are mentioned increasingly frequently in sociology, cultural studies and art history, but rarely is the debate developed further. The Flâneur is the first book to develop the debate beyond Baudelaire and Benjamin, and to push it in unexpected and exciting directions.

About the Author:

Keith Tester is Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Cultural Studies at the University of Portsmouth.

Review:

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.
–Jim McGuigan, University of Coventry
