"Paris is the way it is today because of a whole series of conscious decisions. "

The Guardian‘s Stuart Jeffries has filmed Eric Hazan, author of 'The Invention of Paris: A History Told in Footsteps', sharing his thoughts on how the city has developed and and how it is rediscovering its edge—not in the historic center but in the suburbs.


1) "The Invention of Paris" by Eric Hazan is a guide, quartier by quartier, to the "psychogeography" of the first great modern city." ~ Guardian

2) "Parisians" by Graham Robb is "a new account of Paris that strips away illusions of elegance to reveal the rebel hearts of its citizens." ~ Andrew Hussey, The Observer
