Overview

Contrasting the charge that cultural history is haphazard and primarily made up of a collection of perhaps interesting but disconnected case studies, 18 essays from an April 1997 conference in London provide a clear emphasis on German festival culture, though within a comparative European context. They look at festivals during the four centuries in France, Germany, Burgundy, Lorraine, Austria, Hungary, and Russia. The chronological and geographical breadth of the collection is intended to add a new dimension to festival studies, which often focus on whether or not German festivals further the German nationalist agenda. The text is double spaced. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
