Media and the Making of Modern Germany by Corey Ross
Book DescriptionFew developments in the industrial era have had a greater impact on everyday social life than the explosion of the mass media and commercial entertainments, and none have exerted a more profound influence on the nature of modern politics. Nowhere in Europe were the tensions and controversies surrounding the rise of mass culture more politically charged than in Germany-debates that played fatefully into the hands of the radical right. Corey Ross provides the first general account of the expansion of the mass media in Germany up to the Second World War, examining how the rise of film, radio, recorded music, popular press, and advertising fitted into the wider development of social, political, and cultural life. Spanning the period from the late nineteenth century to the Third Reich, Media and the Making of Modern Germany shows how the social impact and meaning of 'mass culture' were by no means straightforward or homogenizing, but rather changed under different political and economic circumstances. By locating the rapid expansion of communications media and commercial entertainments firmly within their broader social and political context, Ross sheds new light on the relationship between mass media, social change, and political culture during this tumultuous period in German history.

Pleasure and Power in Nazi Germany, Hardback (April 2011)
Although we associate the Third Reich above all with suffering, pain and fear, pleasure played a central role in its social and cultural dynamics. This book explores the relationship between the rationing of pleasures as a means of political stabilization and the pressure on the Nazi regime to cater to popular cultural expectations.
Media and the Making of Modern Germany, Paperback (May 2010)
Media and the Making of Modern Germany provides the first full account of the expansion of the mass media in Germany up to the Second World War, examining how the rise of film, radio, recorded music, popular press, and advertising fitted into the wider development of social, political, and cultural life.
Mass Media, Culture and Society in Twentieth-Century Germany, Hardback (September 2006)
This is the first study of mass media in Germany from a social and cultural-historical perspective.

Constructing Socialism at the Grass-roots, Hardback (March 2000)» View all books by Corey Ross
This is a study of the building of socialism in East Germany, but not from the standard perspective of the party and state authorities. It examines the effects at the grassroots level, where the pre-communist past and divided loyalties played a role in shaping the face of socialism.
