An ever-increasing proportion of our lives is spent in supermarkets, airports and hotels, on motorways or in front of TVs, computers and cash machines. This invasion of the world by what Marc Auge calls 'non-space' results in a profound alteration of awareness: something we perceive, but only in a partial and incoherent manner. Auge uses the concept of 'super modernity' to describe a situation of excessive information and excessive space. In this fascinating essay, now re-issued with a new introduction, he seeks to establish an intellectual framework for an anthropology of super modernity modernity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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 Auge has become their anthropologist, and has written a timely and original book." Patrick Wright, author of The Village That Died for England."
