Om bogen

Byerne i Mellemøsten gennemgik i starten af det 20. århundrede dramatiske ændringer, nye offentlige bygninger og rum dukkede op, og i kølvandet på dem et helt nyt samfund. Nye institutioner som biografer og museer opstod, mens fx gammelkendte rum som gaden blev et samlingspunkt for nye former for socialt og politisk liv.

Bogen forsøger at kortlægge, hvordan disse forandringer påvirkede indbyggerne i byerne.

Pressen skrev

"This collection of essays is the first and promising volume, which inaugurated the Institute's [The Danish Institute in Damascus] series of proceedings ... the book is well written as well as abundantly and mostly aptly illustrated ... The book ... should be a source of inspiration not only for scholars and researchers but also for all those with a keen interest in the relationship between space and consciousness in the context of urban modernity ..."
