The Polish city of Warsaw is often invoked as the epitome of the brutal environment produced by Soviet aesthetics and planning. In fact, it has been spectacularly transformed since the introduction of a market economy in 1989. Yet shadows from its past remain. In Warsaw, David Crowley tells the cultural history of the city through narrative and anecdote and reflects on the ways in which lived space is used and lent meaning by its inhabitants.
