The Dead City: Urban Ruins and the Spectacle of Decay

The Dead City: Urban Ruins and the Spectacle of Decay by Paul Dobraszczyk
English | June 30th, 2017 | ASIN: B01N5UO88B, ISBN: 1784537160 | 272 pages | EPUB | 10.55 MB

Cities are imagined not just as utopias, but also as ruins. In literature, film, art and popular culture, urban landscapes have been submerged by floods, razed by alien invaders, abandoned by fearful inhabitants and consumed in fire. The Dead City unearths meanings from such depictions of ruination and decay, looking at representations of both thriving cities and ones which are struggling, abandoned or simply in transition.
