Editorial Reviews

Review

"This outstanding book has retrieved all the luminous qualities of its subject matter to produce an astonishing revelation of gleaming appearances on splendid display. It is unrivalled by any previous study." - Marcus Bullock, coeditor of Walter Benjamin: Selected Writings 1913-26 "Weimar Surfaces creates provocative new connections between the historical constellations that found a privileged expression in Weimar Berlin and the more contemporary debates on the legacies of modernism and modernity. A compelling study." - Sabine Hake, author of The Cinema's Third Machine "Janet Ward's study of Weimar architecture and design is the most comprehensive and integrated study of the surface of Weimar experience yet written.... A first-rate and stimulating book." - Sander L. Gilman, coauthor of Hysteria Beyond Freud"

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This could have been a great book had the author not insisted in writing in an overly dense style that did more to hide her main points than illuminate them. If you like reading convoluted ten clause sentences then you'll love this book. Again, the issue here isn't so much the theory or arguments contained within the book, the problem is with how this information is presented.
