" Nimbly interweaving the histories of science, technology, philosophy, popular culture, and the visual arts, Jonathan Crary provides a stunning challenge to conventional wisdom about the epochal transformation of visual culture in the nineteenth century. "Techniques of the Observer" will be a vital resource for anyone concerned with the complex interaction of technological modernization and aesthetic modernism." -- Martin Jay, University of California at Berkeley
