The Weimar Years are explored mostly through pictures. We get to see what German artists can do when set free.

I usually see this era through UFA. However, there are other arts, artists and even politics of the time captured here to reflect on. On the other hand, maybe just a little nostalgia for the world we missed. Some of the films are Fitz Lang's "M", Marlene Dietrich's "The Blue Angle", and "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari."

Contents:
Introduction
Upsurge and aftermath 1918 -- 20
The turning point in 1921 -- 3
Sober reality 1924 -- 8
The culture of cities
Economy and backlash 1929 -- 33
Selective index of names, illustrations and credits

This is not an end-all be-all book of the more Republic but makes a good supplement to your library and occasionally you'll want to look back at the advertisements.

This is an amazingly crisp account of a major art period. Use it with caution -- it may change your life!
