A book on The Wire


It’s interesting that the TV show The Wire is still proving to be such a rich source if social commentary and analysis. I just came across this post about a new book on The Wire: Race, Class and Genre. A little while ago I wrote a couple of pieces on the analytical value of The Wire. The first piece explored ‘The Wire as social science fiction‘. this piece looked at how The Wire could be understood as a form of social and political science. And the second piece expanded in this by focusing upon what The Wire means for urban studies. This second piece was call ‘The Ivorine tower in the city: engaging urban studies after The Wire‘. Both of these are published in subscription journals but there is a short post about the second piece on the CITY blog here. There are links from the CITY blog to some other articles about The Wire that appeared in the same special issue.
