Publisher: Yale University Press, New Haven
Publication Date: 1988
A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket. In this revealing study, two East German theater historians present the downside of glittering Weimar. Mocking Germany's importation of American jazz, the authors point out that "grotesque misunderstandings" bedeviled German music into the mid-1920s. They bring to light experimental radio, Dada pranks, political theater and progressive educational projects, all of which seem like islands of cultural innovation sinking in a sea of schlock. Among the 222 illustrations are posters, woodcuts, film stills, theater sets and pictures of the era's symbols like the Graf Zeppelin airship and the Bauhaus. Here is the graphic account of the cultural and artistic period in Germany from 1918-1933, including art, architecture, literature and cinema. It was an explosive and glamorous period that was only hinted at in Isherwood's "Berlin Stories" and the film, "Cabaret." First Printing of the First English Language Edition.
