MEDIA REVIEWS
"While reading Rabatk's book I constantly had in mind Theodor Adorno's remark to Walter Benjamin about the latter's habit of 'occult adjacentism'. Adorno, of course, meant this as a damning criticism of his friend's method in the Arcades project, but it beautifully describes the effect of 1913 and its kaleidoscopic presentation of a world that troublingly-uncannily-intimates our own." (MLR, April 2009) "Rabate offers scholars and students a new portrait of cosmopolitan modernism to contemplate, making a study of globalization central to his understanding of the period's literary and artistic endeavors." (The Review of English Studies, June 2009) "This book's clarity and specificity will reward even readers familiar with his topics. Summing Up: Highly recommended."(Choice)
