The Rites of Spring by Modris Eksteins - Modris Eksteins presented a tour-de-force interpretation of the political, social and cultural climate of the early twentieth century.

Eksteins examined ways in which life influenced, imitated, and even became art. Eksteins argues that life and art, as well as death, became so intermeshed as to be indistinguishable from one another....   [tags: Eksteins Rites Spring] 1030 words

The Power of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring - The Power of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring In 1962, Rachel Carson published Silent Spring and was greeted with a roar of protest and approval.
