Rethinking Vienna 1900

£9.99

Product description

Fin-de-siecle Vienna remains a central event in the birth of the century's modern culture. Our understanding of what happened in those key decades in Central Europe at the turn of the century has been shaped in the last years by an historiography presided over by Carl Schorske's. Recent scholarship, however, has begun to question the main paradigm of this school, i.e.. the "failure of liberalism." This volume reflects not only a whole range of the critiques but also offers alternative ways of understanding the subject, most notably though the concept of "critical modernism" and the integration of previously neglected aspects such as the role of marginality, of the market and the larger Central and European context.

Paperback. Some faint marking on cover, cracking and bending on spine, though all pages intact. Some annotations in pencil.
