Richard Sennett has spent an intellectual lifetime exploring how humans live in cities. In this pair of essays he visits two of the world’s greatest cities at crucial moments in their history to meditate on the condition of exile in both geographical and psychic space: the Jewish Ghetto of Renaissance Venice, where state-imposed outsiderdom was translated into a rich community identity; and nineteenth-century Paris, a magnet for political exiles, where the experience of displacement seeped into the city’s culture at large.
