From Library Journal: "The everyday life of Berliners during the turbulent years of the Weimar Republic (1918-33) is movingly revealed here. Friedrich, who is associated with the Museumspadagogische Dienst in Berlin and who specializes in the photographic history of this period, has assembled from Berlin archives almost 300 "rarely seen" photographs, written a lucid text, and captioned each photograph. He provides a spellbinding look at the contrasts that existed in this restless city from the severe economic deprivations to glorious artistic and technological achievements. The unusually sharp images portray the hungry in soup lines, masses of striking workers, uniformed patrols quelling rioters, innovative architectural structures, garish cabaret life, scenes from acclaimed film and theater productions, leisure activities, and the distressing presence of storm troopers. In addition, British poet Stephen Spender has contributed an eloquent foreword. A masterful work for all library collections." ; 11.90 X 9.70 X 1.10 inches; 240 pages
