Modern Times, Modern Places

Author: PETER CONRAD

Publisher: KNOPF


This book examines the impact of industry, revolution, and rapid change on our lives throughout the last century. To telegraph the historical context, the title resembles a forties-era movie title; three-dimensional letters superimposed over a industrial cityscape, oppressively looming over a robotic everyman—A futuristic dystopia as it may have been imagined earlier in the past century.
