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

Synopsis:

The flaneur is usually identified as the man of the crowd' of Edgar Allan Poe and Charles Baudelaire, and as one of the heroes of Walter Benjamin's Arcades project. The flaneur 's activities of strolling and loitering are metioned increasingly frequently in sociology, cultural studies and art history, but rarely is the debate developed further. The Flaneur is a series of original essays, each providing new and exciting histories of the origins of the flaneur and flanerie and each written by a leading figure in the field. The book raises such questions as: Do we have to wald the streets to indulge in flanerie ?', How is the city a gendered space?' and How might flanerie be possible from the safety of dining tables?' Important light is cast on the significance and future of flanerie , and questions are raised about the current status of sociological and cultural studies.
