Description - Europe in the Twentieth Century by George Lichtheim
The great upheavals in the 20th Century completely altered the shape of Europe, and her role in international affairs--and this riveting analysis shows just how the profound changes in intellectual, artistic, and religious awareness were both cause and consequence of the decay of traditional liberal-bourgeois culture. Taking into account factors such as nationalism, socialism, the European civil war between communist and fascist movements after 1919, the decline of the nation-state, and the rise of technocratic forms of government, the result is a compelling and comprehensive view of European civilization between 1900 and 1970.
