’The Birth of a New World – 1918-1923’ by Mária Schmidt in English
The conflagration that erupted in 1914 and then reached worldwide dimensions exploded and put an end to the old world, while opening the way to a new, unprecedentedly cruel era which is customarily called the short twentieth century. The first attempts at interpreting the Great War stemmed from the logic of the war itself and thus described the events as a struggle between Good and Evil. Many people still support that narrative. Mária Schmidt’s essay entitled ‘The Birth of a New World – 1918-1923’ is one of the first intellectual attempts at transcend the explanations based on diametrical oppositions. A mere hundred years have passed since that era and this book can therefore fairly be defined as a real beginning.
