This ambitious, graphically innovative volume presents several layers of meditation on the phenomenon of collectivities, from the scholarly to the personal. It consists of a number of essays by international experts, including Allen Guttmann, Susanna Elm, Stefan Jonsson, John Plotz, Christine Poggi, Richard Sennett, and Charles Tilly, as well as collaboratively produced essays by the Crowds research team at the Stanford Humanities Lab. The essays are interspersed with personal testimonies from individuals involved in culturally significant crowd moments of the last fifty years and semantic histories of the important terms relating to this phenomenon in world languages. Finally, the print volume is accompanied by a searchable digital library of hard-to-find writings on crowds from 1850-1915, and a databank of images and film clips richly illustrating the crowd phenomenon and its representations in various media.   show more
