The Barcelona Reader : Cultural Readings of a City Paperback

Edited by Enric Bou, Jaume Subirana


Over the last twenty years there has been a growing international interest in the city of Barcelona.

This has been reflected in the academic world through a series of studies, courses, seminars, and publications.

The Barcelona Reader hinges together a selection of the best academic articles, written in English, about the city, and its main elements of identity and interest: art, urban planning, history and social movements.

The book includes scholarly essays about Barcelona that can be of interest to the student and the general public alike.

It focuses on cultural representations of the city: the arts (including literature) provide a complex yet discontinuous portrait of the city, similar to a patchwork.

The authors selected create a kaleidoscope of views and voices thus presenting a diverse yet inclusive Barcelona portrait.

The Barcelona Reader offers a multifaceted assessment that will be essential reading for anyone interested in this iconic city.
