The Birth Of The Modern, Revisited

“Those eight months in Paris, back in 1919, that’s when our world began to go off the rails.”–about 25 minutes into Thursday’s edition of Ed Morrissey’s Heading Right show on Blog Talk Radio, David Andelman of Forbes makes the same point regarding World War I that I discussed a couple of weeks ago.

Of course, my post from mid-September is only about 175 words long; Andelman has a whole book on the topic titled A Shattered Peace: Versailles 1919 and the Price We Pay Today, which sounds like a must-read.
