Reviews

"Unsettling, elegantly written and illuminating: essential reading for anyone seeking to understand our supermodern condition."--PD Smith, Guardian

"Shopping malls, motorways, airport lounges--we are all familiar with these curious spaces which are both everywhere and nowhere. But only now do we have a coherent analysis of their far-reaching effects on public and private experience. Marc Augé has become their anthropologist, and has written a timely and original book."--Patrick Wright

"It is indeed very seldom that one finds it difficult to put down a book because of the intellectual excitement it generates. Augé's Non-Places is such a book--a powerful message, modestly delivered, which stands out as a unique and refreshing anthropological voice."--Current Anthropology
