Examining the difficult choices left for a modern society with a tottering economy, this book considers the clash of generations, the advent of the new woman, the loosening class structures, the failures of pioneering welfare schemes, the flourishing of mass culture and intense conflicts between nostalgic traditionalism and "American" modernity. The book confronts the paradox of Weimar: the juxtaposition of the hopeful picture of avant-garde cultural achievement, and the bleak picture of political breakdown and social misery. Detlev J.K. Peukert is the author of "Inside Nazi Germany".
