9780691100258: Recasting Bourgeois Europe


The author of fourteen books, Charles Maier is one of the most prominent contemporary scholars of European history.



Recasting Bourgeois Europe, his first book, presented an unparalleled analysis of the crucial decade in Europe after 1918. Based on extensive archival research in each of the three countries, the book examined how European societies progressed from a moment of social vulnerability to one of political and economic stabilization.



Recasting Bourgeois Europe accomplished two major historiographical goals simultaneously. First, Maier provided a comparative history of three different European societies for a period when common developments demanded an approach other than that of the usual national histories. Second, he rethought the political structure of the European interwar period. Although most accounts presented the 1920s as a time characterized by illusory attempts to return to a prewar political equilibrium, and doomed to succumb to the Depression and the dictatorships, Maier suggested instead that the stabilization of the 1920s, vulnerable as it was, foreshadowed the more enduring political stability achieved after World War II.


The immense and ambitious scope of this book, its ability to follow diverse but uni.ed histories in detail, and its effort to make stabilization, and not just breakdown, a historical problem have made it a classic of European historiography.

Book Description Princeton University Press, 1975. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This book examines a critical topic in the disciplining of forces of change: how political and economic elites retained their power following world war, economic dislocation, and domestic turmoil--stresses that seem to make social leveling inevitable. Charles S. Maier uses a comparative approach to study this phenomenon as it occurred in France, Germany, and Italy in the decade after World War I. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_069110025X
