Overview:

How can one European capital be responsible for most of the West’s intellectual and cultural achievements in the twentieth century?

Richard Cockett gives us the entirety of this extraordinary story. Tracing Vienna’s rich intellectual history from psychoanalysis to Reaganomics, Cockett encompasses everything from the communist rebels of Red Vienna to the neoliberal economists of the Austrian School. This is the panoramic account of how one city made the modern world–and how we all remain inescapably Viennese.
