The thesis of this book, that ordinary people find ordinary ways to subvert the hegemony of urban existence through "cracks" in the order, relies on a wide range of examples and bedrock theoreticians. If you are up for climbing out of the darkness of his obscure references to Foucault, Durkheim, Lacan, etc., to be rewarded with splendid, illuminating moments of clarity, this is worth it. I found the descriptions of walking through the city of New York particularly useful for thinking about the way culture circulates, how architectural planning is both prohibitive and liberating, and for considering space/time as more than just a map, trajectory, or record of passing. I would think this work is useful for everyone from Art Historians to Anthropologists, Literary Critics to Psychoanalysts, Area Studies to Performance Studies.
