in Russia. The richness and scope of the memoirs in this volume easily demonstrate that this should be different. Hilde Hoogenboom National Humanities Center, Stetson University Reading 1922: A Return to the Scene of the Modern. By Michael North. New York and Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1999. vii + 269 pp. $35.00 The vogue for single-year studies (1688, 1800, 1819, 1831, 1857, 1898, 1910, to name a few) may flood us with mere facts, but not in Michael North's Reading 1922: the most wonderful thing about this wonderful book is that it has it both ways, fleshing out its year in the richest detail but also making a mighty argument about the year's general will. North has all the facts of 1922, in linguistics, anthropology, psychology, advertising, photography, film, travel, literature, and other fields and activities. But he also finds that 1922's developments share a certain pivotal dynamic: each entails a bid for universality of some kind (in linguistics, a universal language; in travel, a world picture) but finds that the drive toward universality leads to recognition of plurality. The dynamic here makes brilliant sense of the events of 1922, and places the year at a pivotal point
