Mosse analyzes how men and women in modern Europe, discontent over the loss of order and the disintegration of traditional values, turned to nationalism. Seeking guidelines upon which they could model their lives, they found in nationalism a means to maintain clear distinctions between the accepted and the unacceptable, the permitted and the forbidden, and the normal and the abnormal.
An excellent collection of essays discussing the rise of mass societies in Europe and the precursors of Nazism.About the Author:
