Urbanism and Urbanity is a groundbreaking cultural history of the nineteenth- and early twentieth-century bourgeois public sphere in Spain. It analyzes the literary representation and construction of gender-based social rituals inscribed onto the map of modern Spanish cities. Addressing novels from Realism to Modernism as documents of customs in dialogue with urban treatises, conduct manuals, and city guides, the book presents a comprehensive picture of the discursive generation of the Spanish urban middle class.Kathleen Davis, a€œFamily Inc.: Corporation and Kinship in La febre da#39;or, a€ Excavatio 12 (1999): 187. 49. ...
