Editorial Reviews

From Scientific American

Tatar's book is particularly relevant today, amid the heated debates over violence, even as the images become more brutal and sensational, and the camera more voyeuristic and merciless. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From The New Yorker

A profound and provocative contribution to our understanding of sexual combat and the aestheticization of violence in modern culture. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The female body has been so routinely a target of violence and abuse that the Lustmord
(sex murder) artistic period of Germany's Weimar Republic isn't as shocking as it should be, but
rather a sad reminder of historical misogyny that still plagues us. Thanks to Ms. Tatar for this
eye-opening account...and to LACMA in Los Angeles for it's recent exhibit of these important,
house-of-horror depictions of the mental state of pre-WWII Germany.

By A Customer on October 11, 1997
Format: Paperback
This book is first and foremost of great interest to students of the arts, illustrating the social climate in which German artists between the World Wars worked and its effect on their art. Additionally, it should also interest hard core true crime buffs. There are plenty of interesting tidbits about Peter Kurten and Fritz Haarman, two of Germany's most twisted citizens, and it is fascinating to see how their crimes influenced German attitudes, reflected in the violent art that the region produced. One could draw parallels to modern American society's current attitudes towards serial killers, but that's another book entirely.

Format: Paperback
Fascinating book that looks at the art of Germany after World War 1 and discusses the implication of the sexually violent images that increased dramatically at that point in history. This is a sociological look at the connection between the culture of the times and the idiosyncrasies that produced such a mindset. Pat Brown/Director/Investigative Criminal Profiler/The Sexual Homicide Exchange, Inc.
