Weimar Surfaces by Janet Ward
Book DescriptionGermany of the 1920s offers a stunning moment in modernity, a time when surface values first became determinants of taste, activity, and occupation: modernity was still modern, spectacle was still spectacular. Janet Ward's luminous study revisits Weimar Germany via the lens of metropolitan visual culture, analyzing the power that 1920s Germany holds for today's visual codes of consumerism.

Transnationalism and the German City, Hardback (March 2014)
Too often, scholars treat transnationalism as a conflict in which the local, regional, and national give way to globalized identity. As these varied studies of German cities show, though, the urban environment is actually a site of trans-localism that is not merely oppositional, but that adapts itself dialectically to the forces of globalization.

Written by a leading historian of urban visual culture, Janet Ward's Post-Wall Berlin: Borders, Space and Identity demonstrates how the reunified German capital, in its bid to overcome its legacy of Cold-War division, has faced many new frontiers and boundaries on social, economic, architectural and infrastructural levels.
