9780140109627: All That Is Solid Melts into Air

Marshall Bermans All That Is Solid Melts Into Air is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest books on modernity. A kaleidoscopic journey into the experiences of modernization, the dizzying social changes that swept millions of people into the capitalist world, it dexterously interweaves an exploration of modernism in art, literature, and architecture.

The imaginative range, intellectual force and infectious generosity of this book are what place it incontestably in the gallery of canonical texts. --Mica Nava, Times Higher Education Supplement

A bubbling cauldron of ideas. --New Statesman

A wonderful book ... generous, exuberant and dazzling. --John Leonard, New York Times

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1988. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Open market ed. 196 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A bubbling caldron of ideas . . . Enlightening and valuable. Mervyn Jones, New Statesman. The political and social revolutions of the nineteenth century, the pivotal writings of Goethe, Marx, Dostoevsky, and others, and the creation of new environments to replace the oldall have thrust us into a modern world of contradictions and ambiguities. In this fascinating book, Marshall Berman examines the clash of classes, histories, and cultures, and ponders our prospects for coming to terms with the relationship between a liberating social and philosophical idealism and a complex, bureaucratic materialism.From a reinterpretation of Karl Marx to an incisive consideration of the impact of Robert Moses on modern urban living, Berman charts the progress of the twentieth-century experience. He concludes that adaptation to continual flux is possible and that therein lies our hope for achieving a truly modern society. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780140109627
