From Publishers Weekly
In 806 pages, the editors have pulled together original writings recording the aftereffects in Germany of WWI; the economic, social and cultural climate of Weimar; and the rise of Nazism.

From Library Journal
From the end of World War I to the rise of Adolf Hitler, the Weimar Republic remains one of the pivotal social experiments in 20th-century history, embracing all aspects of German cultural, political, and social life. The editors of this volume, who are academics and scholars of European history and culture, have compiled a richly diverse collection of writings from prominent social critics, intellectuals, and writers of the period, from Hannah Arendt to Hilter and Kurt Weill. Revolutions in music, art, architecture, etc., are documented from magazines, newspapers, and recently discovered documents in 30 chapters of readable yet intensive material. The selections are geared heavily toward cultural developments rather than politics and leadership; as a result, the volume does not give a sense of why the extraordinary experiment of Weimar failed and how it could have led to its extreme antithesis in Nazism. This volume will appeal to scholars of the period, as well as to those interested in cultural and intellectual history. It should be read in conjunction with Peter Gay's Weimar Culture (1968), an excellent reference guide. Well recommended for public and academic libraries.
