  Paris, Capital of Modernity: Paris and the Second Empire
by David Harvey

Editorial Reviews
Book Description
Collecting David Harvey's finest work on Paris during the second
empire, Paris, Capital of Modernity offers brilliant insights ranging
from the birth of consumerist spectacle on the Parisian boulevards,
the creative visions of Balzac, Baudelaire and Zola, and the
reactionary cultural politics of the bombastic Sacre Couer. The book
is heavily illustrated and includes a number drawings, portraits and
cartoons by Daumier, one of the greatest political caricaturists of
the nineteenth century.
