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.

You can find Fracture on the New Book Shelf, near the staircase on the main floor of the Library.
