Introduction to Modernity (Paperback)
Published in 1962, when Lefebvre was beginning his career as a lecturer in sociology at the University of Strasbourg, this book established his position in the vanguard of the movement which was to culminate in the events of May 1968. It is a book which supersedes the conventional divisions between academic disciplines.
Henri Lefebvre (1901-1991), former resistance fighter and professor of sociology at Strasbourg and Nanterre, was a member of the French Communist Party from 1928 until his expulsion in 1957. He was the author of sixty books on philosophy, sociology, politics, architecture and urbanism.
