City Limits free pdf Recent studies of the structure and everyday activities of cities have highlighted the pluralism inherent in dense populations and looked at crucial themes such as culture, class, gender, governance and social practices. "City Limits" advances this work by offering richly detailed studies of aspects of city life in such important early modern European centres as London, Paris, Augsburg, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and Edinburgh. In essays that capture the multiple aspects of urban life, contributors examine European cities through the lenses of history, literature, art, architecture and music. Covering topics such as governance, performance, high culture and subculture, tourism and journalism, this volume provides new and invigorating ways to think about cities both past and present. An innovative and interdisciplinary work, "City Limits" crosses conventional critical boundaries to depict a vibrant and moving cityscape of historical urban experience.
