Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0887846211, Paperback)

Open City is an investigation into the city: its nature, its possible futures, its emergence as one of the most contested economic, cultural, and political sites of our time. The range of contributors is as diverse and dynamic as the cities they examine, inhabit, and haunt: philosopher Jacques Derrida reflects on the fate of Prague; playwright Richard Sanger presents a drama set in war-torn Sarajevo; poet Lynn Crosbie explores Toronto's hidden corners in an epic ABC; architecture theorist and mayor of Venice Massimo Cacciari discusses Naples and the new Europe; novelist André Alexis reveals mystical tropes beneath Ottawa; and architecture theorist Paul Virilio discusses the political dangers lurking in cyberspace. Other contributors include novelist Catherine Bush, Harvard architecture professor Rodolphe el-Khoury, architect Farshid Moussavi, artist Krystof Wodiczko, and many more.
