Marshall Berman was one of the great urbanists and Marxist cultural critics of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and his ground-breaking book All That Is Solid Melts Into Air is a masterpiece of the literature on modernism.
Completed just before his death in 2013, Modernism in the Streets: A Life and Times in Essays, is Berman’s intellectual autobiography; including early essays on the radical ’60s, New York City, literary figures from Kafka to Pamuk, and later essays on rock, hip hop, and gentrification.
