       The fateful quarter century leading up to World War I was a time when the world of Privilege still existed in Olympian luxury and the world of Protest was 'heaving in its pain, its power, and its hate.' The age was the climax of a century of the most accelerated rate of change to that point in history, a cataclysmic shaping of destiny.
In The Proud Tower, Barbara Tuchman concentrated on society rather than the state. With an artist's selectivity Tuchman brings to vivid life the people, places, and events that shaped the years leading up to the Great War: the Edwardian aristocracy and the end of their reign; the Anarchists of Europe and America, who voiced the protest of the oppressed; Germany, as portrayed through the figure of the self-depicted Hero, Richard Strauss; the sudden gorgeous blaze of Diaghilev's Russian Ballet and Stravinsky's music; the Dreyfus Affair; the two Peace Conferences in The Hague; and, finally, the youth, ideals, enthusiasm, and tragedy of Socialism, epitomized in the moment when the heroic Jean Jaures was shot to death on the night the War began and an epoch ended.
