Read full description of the books Fin-de-Siècle Vienna: Politics and Culture:

A landmark book from one of the original scholars of our time: a magnificent revelation of turn-of-the-century Vienna where out of a crisis of political & social disintegration so much of modern art & thought was born.
"Not only is it a splendid exploration of several aspects of early modernism in their political context; it is an indicator of how the discipline of intellectual history is currently practiced by its most able & ambitious craftsmen. It is also a moving vindication of historical study itself, in the face of modernism's defiant suggestion that history is obsolete."--David A. Hollinger, History Book Club Review
"Each of [7 separate studies] can be read separately...Yet they are so artfully designed & integrated that one who reads them in order is impressed by the book's wholeness & the momentum of its argument."--Gordon A. Craig, The New Republic
"A profound work...on one of the most important chapters of modern intellectual history"-- H.R. Trevor-Roper, NY Times Book Review
"Invaluable to the social & political historian...as well as to those more concerned with the arts"-- John Willett, NY Review of Books
"A work of original synthesis & scholarship. Engrossing."--Newsweek
