Richard Sennett has spent an intellectual lifetime exploring how humans live in cities. This pair of essays explores displacement in the metropolis through two vibrant historical moments: mid-nineteenth-century Paris, with its community of political exiles, and Renaissance Venice, where state-imposed restrictions on “outsider” groups – including prostitutes as well as Jews – had surprising cultural consequences.
