Rites of Spring

Lester, Orpen & Dennis, 1989

Weaving together so many of my own interests, Rites of Spring spoke to me immediately. Scholarly and entertaining, Eksteins’ book presents the birth of the modern age in all of its contrasting brilliance and darkness. It covers the onset of the Great War and rolls on into the Second World War, surveying culture, war and politics cleverly and insightfully.
