Rezension: "Naples must be one of the ethnographically most researched cities in the world. In this multi-method study of three areas of urban regeneration, however, Nick Dines breaks new ground by cross-cutting traditional methodological divisions to produce an intensely detailed and conceptually original analysis of a recent phase in Neapolitan history - By combining ethnographic observation over many years with both interviews and surveys, Dines breaks with narrow disciplinary habits, and contextualizes, historically as well as culturally, key events and movements that have shaped the city's present-day configuration." * Qualitative Research "This is a perceptive book and worthwhile read for the true urbanist. It effectively demonstrates, and even showcases, the value of ethnography as a methodology, and any reader would be appreciative of the pointed detail of the archival research. The lessons it offers from Naples on the politics of public space will be of value to anyone studying the contemporary city." * The AAG Review of Books "Nick Dines' painstaking study is a fitting and welcome contribution. Drawing on meticulous and extensive fieldwork conducted during the period of urban renewal dubbed the 'Neapolitan Renaissance', the book provides an extremely innovative perspective on Naples compared to the mainstream literature - From the outset, the study acts as a powerful tool of deconstruction of the discourses that have framed the city in the contemporary era. Atavistic backwardness, violent plebeianism, irresolvable passivity, unstoppable passion and an irreparable lack of civicness have been accorded varying levels of significance over the course of time but nonetheless remain a permanent feature of all narratives about Naples." * Il Manifesto " - a well-written, lively and stimulating study - Current public debates on the so-called Neapolitan Renaissance of the 1990s have often been reduced to the simplistic refrain that 'it was all a question of image'. Tuff Cityinstead returns to the city's recent past to critically engage with the myriad changes that took place, including shifts in public discourse." * Il Matino "This is an important book. In a whole series of ways this study of contemporary Naples will set a bench-mark for urban studies and the way urban history is carried out. It is a book about Naples and thus about the particularities and peculiarities of that specific city. However, this is also a book which goes way beyond Naples itself. It has a lot to tell us about the way the city can and should be studied - about urban studies methodologies - and in this area it is highly original and in some ways sets a new agenda for other researchers, historians, anthropologists, ethnologists, and those using cultural studies approaches." * John Foot, University College London "This is one of the best books I have read: beautifully written and extremely well researched (a refreshing mix of archival research and participant observation) and superbly theorized, with an impressive knowledge of the range of urban theory, as well as meticulous historical contextualization." * Jo Labanyi, New York University " - [A]n interesting and readable text. It is scholarly, ambitious in scope and well written." * Victoria Goddard, Goldsmiths, University of London
