About the Author

Richard Sennett teaches sociology at the London School of Economics and New York University


"Over the past 20 years, Richard Sennett has been at the forefront of those generalists endeavoring to synthesize the urban insights of history, architecture, the arts and social sciences into a coherent cultural vision... A wonderful, stimulating, richly thoughtful work that should add much to our debate about cities in the coming years." -- Philip Lopate - Newsday "A radical, original rethinking of our relationship to the built environment." -- Publishers Weekly "Sennett brings an immensely civilized perspective to the forms and patterns-the visual experiences-of cities, primarily New York City, interpreting how they shape, reflect, or, sadly, fail to reflect, the human beings who built and use them... Provocative and learned." -- Kirkus Reviews
