"Tim Amstrong’s Modernism: A Cultural History is acomprehensive and yet original introduction to the culture ofmodernism, a team Armstrong defines far more widely than previouswriters. This book covers a wider range of non-literary topics thanany other introduction to modernism, taking in mass culture,psychology, the sciences, technology, race and empire, among manyothers. But it also includes well-informed and persuasivediscussions of a host of literary figures usually ignored inhistories of the modern movement. In its sheer inclusiveness,Modernism: A Cultural History expands and alters our notionof what the term 'modernism' can mean."
