"The arcades project is Walter Benjamin's effort to represent and to critique the bourgeois experience of nineteenth-century history and, in so doing, to liberate the suppressed 'true history' that underlay the ideological mask"--Page 4 of cover.
Focusing on the arcades of 19th-century Paris--glass-roofed rows of shops that were early centers of consumerism--Benjamin presents a montage of quotations from, and reflections on, hundreds of published sources.
