This comprehensive and beautifully illustrated collection of essays conveys a vivid picture of a fascinating and hugely significant period in history, the Fin-de-Siecle. Featuring contributions from over forty international scholars, the book takes a thematic approach to a period... of huge upheaval across all walks of life. Topics covered include new concepts of time and space, globilization, the city, new political movements and development including nationalism, the New Liberalism, and socialism and communism. The volume also looks at the new development of mass media over this period and emerging trends in culture, such as advertising and conumption, film and publishing, as well as the technological and scientific changes that shaped the world at the turn of the nineteenth century, such as the telephone and transport, and eugenics and physics. This title also turns to consider issues such as selfhood in chapters looking at gender, sexuality, adolescence, race and class, and considers the importance of different religions, both old and new, at the turn of the century. Finally the volume examines emerging and important trends in art, music and literature alongside movements such as realism and aesthetisism. Taking a truly global focus, the volume conveys a vivid picture of how politics, religion, popular and artistic culture, social practices and scientific endeavors fited together in an exciting world of change. It will be invaluable reading for all students and scholars of the Fin-de-Siecle period.
