FREE shipping on qualifying offers. Photographs and accompanying text portray the artistic, cultural, social, and political life in Berlin during the 1920s. During the 1920s and early '30s Berlin, during the Weimar era, was a unique place. Artists, musicians, composers, and playwrights were flourishing here, free and often wild.

Happily Susanne Keegan nee Everett (she is married to the great military historian John Keegan) has given us a huge slice of wonderful nostalgia in its best form - photographs!!! And a text which is sparse but never wasted. These deal with the city itself as well as its film, art, music, cabaret, Bauhaus architecture and design, politics and history of the empire, republic and dictatorship.

I wanted to own this book of photos of Berlin because it's a rare glimpse into the city before the ravages of World War II. During the 1920s and early '30s Berlin, during the Weimar era, was a unique place. Artists, musicians, composers, and playwrights were flourishing here, free and often wild. Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill began their famous careers in Berlin. This book captures all of it in black and white photos, some naughty, some nice, but all very interesting. In some instances, this photo collection offers pictures of scenes long since gone and not available to view anywhere else. Berlin grabbed my imagination when I visited there a few years ago and I wondered what it must have been like in its "hay day." Now I can flip through these pages and see for myself. A great addition to the collection of anyone interested in this great city.

I've been to Berlin. There isn't much historical stuff that survived World War II. This book brings to life the exciting place that Berlin was in the Weimar Republic days, using a lot of historical photos and skillful writing. It has been researched thoroughly.

Pictures and paper are not so good.

Trying to create the perfect balance between images and text in a coffee-table book is an art in itself. Too much text distracts from the pictures, and not enough text leaves the images bereft of context (which might not be a bad thing). This is about as balanced, well-rounded a book as I've encountered. If you're the kind of history buff or art connoisseur who's usually frustrated by how often the same images crop up in book after book or one documentary after another, a source with this much rare memorabilia is a true treat.

Ms. Everett's writing is concise, informative, and even-handed. She obviously knows the subject of interwar Germany very well, but also knows how to make her point without belaboring it. This gives the book a very brisk pacing while also providing the reader with enough info to feel edified and entertained in equal measure. Perhaps most importantly, Everett doesn't treat Weimar Germany as either some sort of total hedonistic Sodom (a la Mel Gordon's pigsty of a book, "Voluptuous Panic") or wallow too much in the fatalistic rhetoric that gets bandied about when Weimar Germany is the subject (sometimes treated as ill-fated/doomed from the start). This is a wonderful celebration of a cultural experiment whose efflorescence was short-lived, but whose products are so beautiful and fascinating that the decade in question seems to contain centuries of history. Highest recommendation.

This book is a picture book. Most of the pictures are of a Berlin that disappeared under allied bombing. Other pictures are of the picture takers, artists, and movies of that Ziet. The time period covered is the 1920's and 1930's. There are several pictures of the Freicorps, and images from films such as "The cabinet of Dr. Caligari.

Berlin: Symphony of a Great City
Wonderful photographs and narrative; this book captures the life and spirit of Berlin during its heyday. The final few pages address the emergence of the Nazi influence; other books thus are left to relate the ensuing horror that befell Berlin. One of my favourite Berlin books. Also worth a read are "Before the Deluge" and "Faust's Metropolis", two excellent books which cover Berlin in the 20's and 30's.
