For the first time the historically significant accounts of modernity have been brought together, including essays by the main thinkers, such as Marx, Parsons, Mannheim, Giddens, Bourdieu and Adorno, as well as previously unseen material by lesser known figures.

Modernity’s need to appropriate religion for the nationalist project can be seen as a mark of its failed hegemony.

But the contradiction opened up a space for the organization of religion as political interest within the frame of nationalist politics—and hence for the modern and wholly secular politics of.

This text provides a reinterpretation of London during a period of dramatic change, and presents ways of understanding the coming modernity through the transformation of urban landscapes. The book starts an exploration of the major theoretical approaches to modernity.

This is followed by studies of a number of sites within London that demonstrate the coming of modernity. The Routledge Companion to Modernity, Space and Gender reframes the discussion of modernity, space and gender by examining how "modernity" has been defined in various cultural contexts of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, how this definition has been expressed spatially and architecturally, and what effect this has had on women in their everyday lives.

Spaces of Modernity is about the geographies of modern life. It focuses on the citizens and subjects of London, their ways of seeing, their codes of conduct.

Discussion of space and geography has become common in contemporary literary and cultural studies, especially in the fields of postmodernism and postcolonialism. Moving Through Modernity offers the first full-length account of modernism from the perspective of a critical literary geography.

It encourages an interdisciplinary approach linking music, architecture, the visual arts, literature, and social and intellectual history.

The journal's broad scope fosters dialogue about the history of modernism and its relations to modernization. The essays in Modernity and Religion comprise the reflections of eight seminal thinkers on various aspects of the problems of modern thought and its attitude toward religion.

By concentrating on the supposed chasms between modern thought and the assumptions of Christianity, the contributors do much more than show that modernity has failed by its own standards; they also demonstrate that Author: Ralph McInerny.
