Description - The Hieroglyphics of Space by Neil Leach
'Spatial images', wrote the German cultural theorist, Siegfried Kracauer, 'are the dreams of society. Wherever the hieroglyphics of any spatial image are deciphered, there the basis of social reality presents itself.' But how exactly are these spatial images to be deciphered? This volume addresses this question with a series of insightful essays on some of the great metropolitan centres of the world. From political interpretations to gendered analyses, from methods of mapping to filmic representations, and from studies in consumption to economic surveys, the volume offers a range of strategies for reading and experiencing the modern metropolis. David Frisby. Jane Rendell. Anna Notaro. Jonathan Hale. Neil Leach.. Barry Curtis. Sarah Chaplin. Graeme Gilloch. Adrian Rifkin. Steve
