Berlin Alexanderplatz by Peter Jelavich Berlin Alexanderplatz, Paperback (March 2009)

An exploration of a work that was the epitome of German literary modernism illuminates in detail the death of the Weimar Republic's left-leaning culture of innovation and experimentation. It examines Alfred Doblin's "Berlin Alexanderplatz" (1929), a novel that questioned the autonomy and coherence of the human personality in the modern metropolis.

Berlin Cabaret by Peter Jelavich Berlin Cabaret, Paperback (April 1996)

This work looks at Berlin's cabarets from the day the curtain first went up, in 1901, until the Nazi regime brought it down. It follows the changing treatment of popular cabaret themes, and the fate of the cabaret itself.
