Fracture: Life and Culture in the West, 1918-1938, by Philipp Blom
Call Number: D720 .B57 2015 (New Book Shelf)
Historian Philipp Blom looks at the social and cultural forces at work during the years between World Wars, and sees a dark spiral of energy, a vortex of flappers, Surrealism, Art Deco, and hot jazz. He argues that this energy was directed inward, giving rise to an exciting and frightening array of worldviews whose disorienting effects reverberate even to this day. You can find Fracture on the New Book Shelf, near the staircase on the main floor of the Library.
