Our understanding of what happened in those key decades in Central Europe at the turn of the century has been shaped in the last years by an historiography presided over by Carl Schorskes Fin de Siecle Vienna and the model of the relationship between politics and culture which emerged from his work and that of his followers.

Recent scholarship, however, has begun to question the main paradigm of this school, i.e. the failure of liberalism.This volume reflects not only a whole range of the critiques but also offers alternative ways of understanding the subject, most notably though the concept of critical modernism and the integration of previously neglected aspects such as the role of marginality, of the market and the larger Central and European context.

As a result this volume offers novel ideas on a subject that is of unending fascination and never fails to captivate the Western imagination.
