German Urban Experience by Anthony McElligott

Book Description

By the 1930s over two-thirds of Germans lived in towns and cities, and those who did not found themselves inexorably affected by the ever-growing urban vortex. The German Urban Experience 1900 - 1945 surveys the social and cultural history of Germany in this crucial period through written, visual and oral sources. Focusing on urbanism as one of the major forces of change, this book presents a wide range of archive sources, many available for the first time, as well as film scenes, literature and art. Exploring the German experience of 'urbanism as a way of life' in cities from Berlin and Dresden to Hamburg and Leipzig, this book discusses: the concept of the urban experience the development of urban infrastructure and transport the social conditions of the urban poor health and the effects of the city on the body production and commerce in German cities the city as a challenge to traditional gender hierarchies

Rethinking the Weimar Republic by Anthony McElligott Rethinking the Weimar Republic, Hardback (December 2013)

Anthony McElligott's new study challenges conventional approaches to the history of the Weimar Republic. Taking as its premise that neither 1918 nor 1933 constituted distinctive breaks in early twentieth-century German history, 'Rethinking the Weimar Republic' stretches the chronological-political parameters of the republic from 1916 to 1936.

Weimar Germany by Anthony McElligott Weimar Germany, Hardback (March 2009)

An authoritative and up-to-date history of Weimar Germany, with each chapter written by an internationally acknowledged expert in the field, that throws new light on important areas such as constitutional and social reform, Jewish life, gender and cultural developments.
