Editorial Reviews

Review

‘This is a clear, beautifully written, and – unlike many North American books on German history – superbly edited book (German phrases, concepts, and names are error-free)…This valuable contribution should put to rest the long-lasting thesis that sexuality was responsible for the decadence of the first German republic.’

(Norman Domeier H-Soz-Kult April 2016)

‘In her highly original and wide-ranging study, Laurie Marhoefer makes a number of provocative and persuasive arguments regarding the character and significance of sexual politics in the Weimar Republic.... A multifaceted and analytically rigorous contribution.’

(Kirsten Leng German History, vol 34:03:2016)

‘In her excellent book, Marhoefer has certainly succeeded in drawing attention to what she calls the "complexity and ugliness" of homosexual emancipation. At the same time, she ends up reproducing a dynamic common in the field of gay, lesbian, and queer history.’

(Craig Griffiths H-Histsex November 2016)

"Laurie Marhoefer has written an important book that will be of interest not only to those who work on twentieth-century Germany and on the history of sexuality, but that also offers a valuable background to German sexual politics today, where same-sex unions have existed since 2001, while same-sex marriage and same-sex adoption are still the subject of heated debate."

(Katja Hausten Times Literary Supplement, April 1, 2016)

‘Marhoefer’s book will be an excellent addition to graduate collections in German history and cultural studies, European studies, and history of sexuality… The book will also make fine addition to upper-division undergraduate courses.’

(B. Boovy Choice Magazine vol 53:10:2016)

‘Marhoefer’s interlocking theses are impressive for their synthesis and creativity… With her impressive research Marhoefer exposes a pronounced language of exclusion, at least on the part of some reformers.’

(Robert Beachy Journal of Modern History December 2017)

Review

Sex and the Weimar Republic makes a compelling argument about the importance of sexual politics – writ large – in the Weimar Republic. It is an important book, of interest to those who study twentieth-century Germany and to those interested in the history of sexuality.”

(Robert G. Moeller, Department of History, University of California, Irvine)

“An ambitious book. Marhoefer asks us to reconsider the politics of sexuality in the Weimar years – including its role in bringing Hitler to power. Sex and the Weimar Republic is carefully researched, broad in its scope, and packs important insights for those interested in queer politics today.”

(Elizabeth Heineman, Department of History, University of Iowa)
