The propaganda fostered a view that called for a rejection of all things foreign that corrupted Germany.

Publisher Synopsis of the volume European Culture in the Great War

'... an important collection that casts new light on the cultural history of the Great War ... essential reading for anyone who is interested in the complex relationship between propaganda and popular culture.' History Today 'The book's essays on the Great Powers are fresh and occasionally provocative, but the collection siginificantly enriches our conception of Europe by including informative chapters on Romania, Bulgaria, and the culture of the Poles, the Hungarians, the Czechs, the South Slavs, the Jews, and the Belgians.' Slavic Review 'Scholars of the First World War familiar only with the histories of Britain, France or Germany will find much that is new and valuable ... the real strength of the collection rests in the attention it pays to the neglected regions and nations of east central Europe.' Journal of Modern History '... a notable contribution to the literature ... All in all, this is a feast of a book.' Economic History Review
