Perhaps no other city in the world has so many resonances, on so many levels, as Paris. Cafe society, demi-monde, the intellectual life, film-makers and writers - Paris has fragmented socially, sexually, intellectually and linguistically into many fields, some of which are investigated in this book, which incorporates literary analysis, film, social and gender theory, and perspectives on urbanism. The contributors examine how Paris has been both seen and shaped by tourist guides, how its topography has been represented and allegorized by film-makers such as Godard, Clair, Vigo and Renoir, and how the city has responded to "new" Parisians such as Afro-American musicians and dancers, and to previously marginalized Parisians such as homosexuals and women.
