The Garden and the Workshop: Essays on the Cultural History of Vienna and Budapest

by ,

Hanak's book paints a remarkable portrait of turn-of-the-century life in Central Europe. The author notes that Vienna, famed for its spacious parks and gardens, was often characterized as a "garden" of esoteric culture, while Budapest was a dense city surrounded by factories, whose cultural leaders referred to the offices and cafes where they met as "workshops". This title's focus on mass culture and everyday life offers important new insights into cultural currents that shaped the course of the 20th century. Photos.
