We are pleased to say that The Political Unconscious of Architecture edited by Nadir Lahiji is now available in paperback.
Thirty years have passed since eminent cultural and literary critic Fredric Jameson wrote his classic work, The Political Unconscious: Narrative as a Socially Symbolic Act and now a team of leading scholars examine the important contribution made by Jameson to the radical critique of architecture over this period.
