The Fin-de-Siècle World













Michael Saler, editor. The Finde-Siècle World. Abingdon, UK: Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group (2014).

Dozens of writers contribute to this fascinating reconsideration of the “fin-de-siècle before last.” Peter Fritzsche, professor of history at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, contributed an overview of urban life in major cities, including Chicago, Berlin, and Tokyo. The global reach of his study is characteristic of the collection, which succeeds in broadening our understanding.

In his Author! Author! blog series, Museum president Gary T. Johnson highlights works that draw on our collection.
