Inhaltsangabe

The 20th century in Europe was an urban century: it was shaped by life in, and the view from, the street. Women were not liberated in legislatures, but liberated themselves in factories, homes, nightclubs, and shops. Lenin, Hitler, and Mussolini made themselves powerful by making cities ungovernable, with riots rampaging through streets and bars occupied one-by-one.

New forms of privacy and isolation were not simply a by-product of prosperity; rather, they came about because people planned new ways of living: new forms of housing in suburbs and estates across the continent. Our proudest cultural achievements lie not in our galleries or state theatres, but in our suburban TV sets, the dance halls, pop music played in garages, and hip hop sung on our estates.

In Streetlife, Leif Jerram presents a totally new history of the 20th century, with the city at its heart, showing how everything distinctive about the century, from revolution and dictatorship to sexual liberation, was fundamentally shaped by the great urban centres which defined it.

interessanter Ansatz

Eine faszinierende Idee mit viele Facetten, ich habe sehr viel neues erfahren. Die zentrale Ideen werden aber leider mit zahlreichen Wiederholungen immer wieder neu formuliert,, eine Kürzung hatte sehr gut getan. Sehr angenehme Stimme! Für geduldige Hörer über aus empfehlenswert.
