Voluptuous Panic: The Erotic World of Weimar Berli&hellip by Mel Gordon
5.0 out of 5 stars Serious bit of book, 29 May 2014
I bought Voluptuous Panic while writing an essay on cabaret and dance in the Weimar Republic. It's style, much like the subject matter is unconventional and utterly fascinating. This is a book full of intrigue and less usual reference that prompted new lines of enquiry and connections to develop within my research. Well produced full of great visuals. Having completed my essay and studies on Weimar Culture I could easily be tempted to part my copy of VP but I'll definitely keep in for reference and conversation. Mel Gordon is clearly a good author to look out for.
Berlin Cabaret (Studies in Cultural History) by Peter Jelavich
5.0 out of 5 stars What a Great Book, 29 May 2014
During my studies in art history I tackled the Weimar Republic and became particularly interested in the cabaret culture and the cult of dance troupes and Kick-lines such as the Tiller Girls. I referenced this book a number of times in an essay and found it enjoyable, rich and well produced. I would definitely recommend this book to others, academic or not I believe it provides an enthralling and thorough account of cabaret in Berlin late 19th and early 20thC
