The Foreigner: Two Essays On Exile

by Richard Sennett

Richard Sennett has spent an intellectual lifetime exploring how humans live in cities.

This pair of essays explores displacement in the metropolis through two vibrant historical moments: mid-nineteenth-century Paris, with its community of political exiles, and Renaissance Venice, where state-imposed restrictions on ‘outsider’ groups – including prostitutes as well as Jews – had surprising cultural consequences.

‘A fascinating account.’
Times Literary Supplement
