Reviews

"We are fortunate to have de Certeau's work available in English, and in such a graceful and meticulous translation."--Comparative Literature
"Whether writing about madness and mysticism in the seventeenth century, South American resistance movements in the past and present, or the practice of everyday life in the twentieth century, Certeau developed a distinctive way of interpreting social and personal relations."--New York Review of Books
"The Practice of Everyday Life, published in 1974 and now the first of his books available in English translation, offers ample evidence why we should pay heed to de Certeau. . . . the work all but defies definition. History, sociology, economics, literature and literary criticism, philosophy, and anthropology all come within de Certeau's ken."--The Journal of Modern History
"...the book retains its freshness and relevance."--Journal of Business Anthropology
