    A collection of 32 essays by Adrian Rifkin, written over a period of 40 years. The book contains innovative and influential studies of the archives of art; urbanism; music and popular life in France and Britain during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Arranged around a number of pioneering studies of the Commune, the book also contains chapters on Edith Piaf; histories of art education; opera; accounts of the commodity form in Adorno and Benjamin; Zola, as well as queer life in the city. An extended introduction ''Adrian Rifkin, or From Art History in Ruins to a Lost Object' (pp.1-39) by Steve Edwards examines the question of uneven time in Marxist theory and the disciplinary formations that underpin Rifkin's thinking.
