Putting Modernism Together by Daniel Albright
Putting Modernism Together by Daniel Albright
In Putting Modernism Together, the author argues human culture can best be understood as a growth-pattern or ramifying of artistic, intellectual, and political action. Going beyond merely explaining how the artists in these genres achieved their peculiar effects, he presents challenging new analyses of telling craft details which help students and scholars come to know more fully this bold age of aesthetic extremism.

Format: Paperback
This book is well-written. However, the author of the book had an agenda when she wrote it. Her thesis is to disclaim any possibility of what Freud termed as women's propensity to hysteria. This is an especially important topic given the current expansion of sexual assault and rape awareness in the U.S. and globally. It is MOST important in the context of studying the phenomenon of false rape accusations.

The author, unfortunately, uses an almost completely subjective approach to the subject of women's hysteria. Freud's work on hysteria was tied to his observation that most women have active rape fantasies. This has been confirmed by recent (2012 feminist studies into women's sex fantasies). The hysteria, and false accusations of rape, arise because women (like men) are often unable to distinguish between their fantasies and what happens in reality.

For a more objective treatment of the subject, try these:

Rape Hysteria: Lying With Rape Statistics (Female Sex Predators)

Women Who Rape Men (Female Sex Predators)

Female Sex Predators: A Crime Epidemic

Here is a blog that puts out a more balanced and modern point of view on the tragedy of rape: Female Sex Predators: A Crime Epidemic
