Overview:In Praise of the Bicycle - This is the French anthropologist as we've never heard him before: Marc Auge coined the term `non-place' to describeuniquitous, global airports, hotels and motorways filled with anonymous individuals. In this new book, he casts his anthropologist's eye on a subject close to his heart: cycling. In In Praise of the Bicycle, Auge takes us on a personal journey of his own, on a two-wheeled ride around our cities, and on a journey into ourselves. We all remember the thrill of riding a bike for the first time and the joys of cycling. Here he reminds us that these memories are not just personal, but rooted in a time and a place, in a history that is shared with millions of others. Part memoir, part manifesto, Auge celebrates cycling as a way of reconnecting with the places in which we live, and, ultimately, as a necessary alternative to our disconnected world.
