Conrad, Peter. MODERN TIMES, MODERN PLACES: HOW LIFE AND ART WERE TRANSFORMED IN A CENTURY OF REVOLUTION, INNOVATION AND RADICAL CHANGE. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1998. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 752 pages. As New/As New.

The author's account on subject. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. A grand "processional" review of the 20th century. "The single most extensive study of Modernism ever produced. Dazzlingly comprehensive in range" (Times Literary Supplement). An indispensable book for every reader who desires a rewarding and illuminating critique of the tumultuous 20th century, this is Conrad's magnum opus. A "must-have" title for Peter Conrad collectors. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a long time and is now collectible. This is one of relatively few copies of the First American Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the most brilliant Australian intellectual/writers of the 20th century. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PETER CONRAD TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 037540113X. $30.00
