Editorial Reviews

American Libraries
"This scrapbook of the twenties is a mindblower—not only in providing a feel for the twenties but for the horror coming fast on its heels."—American Libraries
Washington Post Book World
"A thorough, anecdotal and lovingly detailed survey in words and pictures of [Berlin’s] golden years under the Weimar Republic. All aspects of the city’s life are covered, not only the philosophers, painters, musicians Bauhaus architects who gave it special distinction but [also] the social unrest, the nightmare inflation, the glittering cabarets and low bars, the prostitutes, drug addicts and petty criminals who have a special bearing on the work of Brecht."—Washington Post Book World
