Communards and Other Cultural Histories

Essays by Adrian Rifkin

A wide-ranging collection of essays from Adrian Rifkin, covering cultural production, urbanism, and social conflict from a critical Marxist perspective.

From the travails of art-critical language in the late eighteenth century to the upheaval of the Paris Commune of 1871, neo-classical art criticism, Bizet’s Carmen and the culture of gay cruising, this collection of Rifkin’s essays maps a work beyond any one discipline.
