Book Description

14 Feb 2002 Studies in the Social and Cultural History of Modern Warfare (Book 6)
It is commonplace to refer to the First World War as an historical watershed, but the nature of that great cataclysm's impact upon European society and culture remains a hotly debated topic. Many recent works have dealt with the Great War's role in shaping artistic and intellectual modernism and with the social history of the war. Yet the English-language literature remains dominated by a disproportionate emphasis on the western European experience. This book redresses the balance by giving equal attention to the countries of eastern and central Europe, and distinguishes itself by focusing specifically on cultural change during the course of the war, as distinct from the after-effects and memories of the conflict.

Product Description


'… an important collection that casts new light on the cultural history of the Great War … essential reading for anyone who is interested in the complex relationship between propaganda and popular culture.' History Today

'The book's essays on the Great Powers are fresh and occasionally provocative, but the collection siginificantly enriches our conception of Europe by including informative chapters on Romania, Bulgaria, and the culture of the Poles, the Hungarians, the Czechs, the South Slavs, the Jews, and the Belgians.' Slavic Review

'Scholars of the First World War familiar only with the histories of Britain, France or Germany will find much that is new and valuable … the real strength of the collection rests in the attention it pays to the neglected regions and nations of east central Europe.' Journal of Modern History

'… a notable contribution to the literature … All in all, this is a feast of a book.' Economic History Review

Book Description

A comparative study of European cultural and social history during the First World War.

Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
The wartime culture of Russia has until recently been little studied for several reasons: the Soviet historiographical enmity towards most of those engaged in it; the near exclusion from literary and art history of things that smell of propaganda or popular culture; and - most important - the absence of a real historical memory of that war in Russia, a memory that was buried beneath the remembrance of the revolutions of 1917 and the civil war that followed. Read the first page
