Críticas:

"It may seem strange, just after an American military victory, to submit to the brooding brilliance of "The Culture of Defeat." But that sort of irony is one of the book's points. Schivelbusch incorporates a cautionary note....[into this] wide-ranging...compelling account." --"The New York Times"
"Inspired...Call him nervy, call him eccentric, but, above all, call Schivelbusch the Clausewitz of defeat...Schivelbusch's anticipation of so many current front-page issues is only one of its many delights." --"The Philadelphia Inquirer"
"A book of detours, eddies, and fascinating asides...A feast of ideas, many of them strikingly appropriate to our own, bellicose times." --"San Francisco Chronicle"
"Fresh and provocative...A novel and thought-provoking book, one that deserves special attention at this moment." --"Houston Chronicle"

Reseña del editor:

Focusing on three seminal cases of military defeat--the South after the Civil War, France in the wake of the Franco-Prussian War, and Germany following World War I--Wolfgang Schivelbusch reveals the complex psychological and cultural responses of vanquished nations to the experience of loss on the battlefield. Drawing on reactions from every level of society, Schivelbusch charts the narratives defeated nations construct and finds remarkable similarities across cultures. Eloquently and vibrantly told, "The Culture of Defeat" is a brilliant and provocative tour de force of history.
