New Berlin by Karen E. Till

Book Description

"The New Berlin" is a notable contribution to human geography and to the interdisciplinary literature on social memory and place making. Till s methods and scholarship have provided the conceptual groundwork for the exploration and development of place making, social memory, and spatial haunting through the particular practices and politics of the new Berlin. Her readable style is marked by a narrative economy in which every word and sentence serves the larger purposes of the book. I recommend this book to anyone student, scholar, or practitioner who is interested in the social dynamics of memory formation and place making. "The Professional Geographer" This book is a well-written first-hand account, though it also thoroughly covers academic literature, contemporary news accounts, and archival records. "German Studies Review" Karen E. Till's" The New Berlin" describes the modern metropolis and the ghosts of the past that it has to deal with. "German World" Well illustrated and copiously footnoted, this is a cutting-edge study of the power of identity-construction/analysis. Highly recommended. "CHOICE""
