From the Back Cover:

Max Nordau was a famous writer, a practicing physician, a bourgeois exemplar of enterprise and energy when his Degeneration appeared in Germany in 1892. He argued that the spirit of the times was characterized by enervation, exhaustion, hysteria, egotism, and inability to adjust to act. Culture had degenerated, he said, and if criminals, prostitutes, anarchists, and lunatics, were degenerations, so were the authors and artists of the era.

About the Author:

George L. Mosse's important introduction has been added to this Bison Book edition. His many works include The Nationalization of the Masses: Political Symbolism and Mass Movements in Germany from the Napoleonic Wars through the Third Reich.
