After an introduction on Culture and Barbarism, Lewisohn discusses men under the headings of Englishmen, Americans, Germans, Frenchmen, Jews, analyzing and appraising such literary figures as Hazlett, George Saintsbury, Santayana, William Ellery Leonard, Thomas Mann, Rilke, Flaubert, Baudelaire, Heine, George Brandes, and Martin Buber. He then provides commentary on a few cities, including Vienna, Berlin, and Venice.
