Germany at the Fin de Siècle: Culture, Politics, and Ideas
Suzanne Marchand, David Lindenfeld
LSU Press, Oct 1, 2004 - History - 312 pages
The phrase fin de siècle conjures up images of artistic experimentation and political decadence. The contributors to this volume argue that Wilhelmine Germany -- best known for its industrial and military muscle -- also shared these traits. Their essays look back to the years between 1885 and 1914 to find in Germany a mixture of sociopolitical malaise and experimental exhilaration that was similar in many ways to the better-known cases of France and Austria.
