Description

Makers of Culture is a bibliographical guide to the ideas of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This collection provides lively and clearly written expositions of those figures who have done most to shape our views today. Critical examinations of the lives and works of leading novelists, poets, dramatists, artists, philosophers, social thinkers, mathematicians and scientists of the period are covered in these indispensable volumes. Because its subjects are assessed in the light of their cultural importance, and because each volume is deliberately interpretative, this collection is both an essential reference book and an engaging collection of essays. These two volumes cover many areas and will be of interest for general reference.

Figures covered include: Malinowski, Kafka, George Orwell, Lenin, Gaudi, Gramsci, Freud, Malcolm X, Henry Miller, Miles Davis, James Joyce, Ravel, Veblen, Edward Sapir, Marx, Wagner, Darwin, Malthus, Balzac, Jane Austen, Nietzsche, Babbage, Edgar Allan Poe, Ruskin, Schleiermacher, Herbert Spencer, Harriet Martineau and Oscar Wilde.
