Gill has written a very enjoyable and reader-friendly survey of Berlin between the two World Wars here. A lot of the names from Berlin's cultural, political, scientific and sociological history will be unfamiliar to modern readers, but Gill's style makes it all go down easy. He is humble enough to acknowledge that his one book can only really skate the surface of Berlin's rich history. I am not knowledgeable enough about Berlin's history to comment as critically as someone like Randall Schroeder of Augustana College (Illinois, USA), namely that Gill slips on the facts sometimes, where Schroeder cites an example that Gill "cites the controversy about the republic's flag but describes the flag backward". However, with that caveat, this still makes a good introduction for those interested in the city or who love the city, as I do.

One of the best in the field on this particular moment of inter-war Germany, with wide reaching and original research. A good anchor for anyone wanting to examine the Arts and Politics at this time. Informative and articulate.

Exellent book about the inter war period in Berlin including of course the communist /left wing up rising at the end of WW1 inflation and unemployment , the crime serial killers drugs Caberet then the depression and battles between right and left with the final disasterous out come of Hitler and the Nazis.

Brilliant and thougthtful analysis of the social, political and social history of Berlin during the period 1918-1939. Sex parties, gay tolerance, the rise of the Nazis and the shadow they cast, the cabarets, the nude revues, the nutty professors, the cycle races, the violent crime - it's all here in what had got to be the standard history of the Weimar era. And it makes you read Christopher Isherwood in a new light too! An absolute must!
