Editorial Planeta brings us through its Watchtower Collection "The Tower of Pride" by Barbara W. Tuchman, set in the 25 years prior to the First World War, a period known as Belle epoque although little of «beautiful»Has had and says very little about what happened at that time.
The scandal of the process a Alfred Dreyfus and the outbreak of worker discontent, collided with the great parties that took place to the beat of various waltzes and even the birth of the imposing Russian ballet.
These contrasts are what Tuchman highlights in his novel, giving prominence to various figures and events in a historical moment in which we found a sleepy Europe and another convulsed, but both totally oblivious to the clues that were given in the day to day that everything would end with the outbreak of World War I, an episode that caused enormous changes in ideas and beliefs.

«Tower of pride»(1966) and«Stilwell and the American Experience in China»(1971), her two subsequent works, ended up raising her world level, in addition to winning her second Pulitzer for the last mentioned work.
