Summary

"Solidly argued . . . A lively and alert text."--Jean Chesnaux, "La Quinzaine Litteraire ""A luminous book, whose sociology of culture is at the same time a beautiful phenomenology of the spirit."--Sophie Ernct, "Les Temps Modernes ""This reflection on the various courses of romanticism [is like] a current of fresh air entering by surprise an elegant dining room designed by the most glacial of the fashionable architects, where for a long time the windows had remained closed."--Enzo Traverso, "Ventesimo Secolo"
