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."

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.
