Cities and Fascination - Beyond the Surplus of Meaning (Paperback): Wolf-Dietrich Sahr, Heiko Schmid, John Urry Cities and Fascination - Beyond the Surplus of Meaning (Paperback)
Wolf-Dietrich Sahr, Heiko Schmid, John Urry
R1,153 Discovery Miles 11 530 Out of stock

Bringing together leading urban scholars, this book discusses the linkages between the economic, social and psychological factors of the urban environment. It focuses on the growth of private urbanity that has led to a 'spectactularization' of the city, the most extreme component of attention being the fascination which is aroused by attractions and state-managed events. The complex characteristics of this fascination are examined under the dimensions of aesthetics, emotions, lived experiences and power structures and governance. The interdisciplinary nature of this collection has wide international appeal and will be of interest to academics of social and cultural geography and cultural and media studies.
