Chiefly known for his elegant and scholarly writing, Richard Sennett deftly explores the disciplines of architecture, design, music, art, literature, history, and political and economic theory. Celebrated for his studies of social ties in cities, Sennett has produced more than a dozen books, including three novels, mostly on aspects of the urban experience and the interconnection between authority, modernism, and public life. In the 1970s Sennett co-founded the New York Institute for the Humanities at New York University, and since the mid-90s he has split his time between NYU and the London School of Economics.
