These were the culture wars in the age of Dreyfus While it was all fascinating to me what I liked best were Brown's discussions of the controversies over the construction of the Eiffel Tower and the Dreyfus affair I wasn't aware of the former and I was only superficially knowledgable about the latter The fury and irrationality that was exposed during the Dreyfus Affair are frightening to read about
