Marc Augé coined the term 'non-place' to describe ubiquitous, global airports, hotels and motorways filled with anonymous individuals. Here, he casts his anthropologist's eye on a subject close to his heart: cycling. With 'In Praise of the Bicycle', Augé takes us on a two-wheeled ride around our cities and on a personal journey into ourselves. We all remember the thrill of riding a bike for the first time and the joys of cycling. Here, Augé reminds us that these memories are not just personal, but rooted in a time and a place, in a history that is shared with millions of others.
