Some brief overview of book

Dazzling in its originality, witty and perceptive in unearthing patterns of behavior that history has erased, RITES OF SPRING probes the origins, the impact, and the aftermath of World War I from the premiere of Stravinskys ballet The Rite of Spring in 1913 to the death of Hitler in 1945. The Great War, as Modris Eksteins writes, was the psychological turning point . .

. for modernism as a whole. The urge to create and the urge to destroy had changed places. In this bold and fertile book (Atlantic Monthly), Eksteins goes on to chart the seismic shifts in human consciousness brought about by this great cataclysm through the lives and words of ordinary people, works of literature, and such events as Lindberghs transatlantic flight and the publication of the first modern bestseller, ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT.

RITES OF SPRING is a remarkable and rare work, a cultural history that redefines the way we look at our past and toward our future. In a remarkable display of originality and discerning historical analysis, Rites of Spring describes the origins, the impact, and the aftermath of the Great War of 1914-1918, arguably the most traumatic event of this century. 16-page, black-and-white photograph insert.
