Liberalism and the Modern City. In his remarkable new book, Patrick Joyce confirms his position as amongst the most inventive and rigorous social historians writing today. Creatively employing and developing Foucault’s conceptions of governmentality, he uses a wealth of fascinating historical material to show how the nineteenth-century city and its citizens were made governable in the name of freedom.

The liberal governance of the nineteenth-century state and city depended on the "rule of freedom"

The liberal governance of the nineteenth-century state and city depended on the "rule of freedom". As a form of rule it relied on the production of certain kinds of citizens and patterns of social life, which in turn depended on transforming both the material form of the city (its layout, architecture, infrastructure) and the ways it was inhabited and imagined by its leaders, citizens and custodians.

Joyce's material on urban walking and omnibus rituals is fascinating

Joyce's material on urban walking and omnibus rituals is fascinating. Ever-present is the argument that the rule of freedom developed in the formidable regulation of the city, and that this new kind of urban freedom and character-formation was itself a form of control. The interplay of freedom with regulation still preoccupies urbanists, given that the city has always been a place where conflicting freedoms clash and have to be negotiated.

The liberal governance of the nineteenth-century state and city depended on the “rule of freedom.” As a form of rule it relied on the production of certain kinds of citizens and patterns of social life, which in turn depended on transforming both the material form of the city (its layout, architecture, infrastructure) and the ways it was inhabited and imagined by its leaders, citizens and custodians.Focusing mainly on London and Manchester, but with reference also to Glasgow, Dublin, Paris, Vienna, colonial India, and even contemporary Los Angeles, Patrick Joyce creatively and originally develops Foucauldian approaches to historiography to reflect on the nature of modern liberal society. His consideration of such “artifacts” as maps and censuses, sewers and markets, public libraries and parks, and of civic governments and city planning, are intertwined with theoretical interpretations to examine both the impersonal, often invisible forms of social direction and control built into the infrastructure of modern life and the ways in which these mechanisms shape cultural and social life and engender popular resistance.
Comments to eBook The Rule of Freedom: Liberalism and the Modern City
Gosar
This is a brilliant book that looks at the way in which urban design helped constitute modern subjects. Using a broad understanding of the material history of British cities and Foucauldian cultural analysis, Joyce demonstrates the importance of material analysis in political history and social analysis.

I read this book many years ago. With the rise of social media and big data, there are new frontiers in which to consider Patrick Joyce's ideas.
