Description
A fascinating study of the history, sociology, architecture, food, crime, and theater of one of Europe's most intriguing cities -- on the eve of its return as the capital of the Unified Germany.

After more than 50 years in limbo, Germany's greatest city is about to become its capital once again. Berlin was founded by the Germans in the thirteenth century, but its seven-hundred-year history is little known outside Germany. British and American writers have concentrated chiefly on Weimar and the Third Reich and not on the city's earlier and more positive legacy.

In this book Giles MacDonogh redresses the balance. He shows Berlin's history in its various incarnations: the trading town, the royal residence, the garrison town, and the industrial city; the capital of the new German nation and the cosmopolitan city of the early twentieth century; the captial of the Third Reich; the divided city after 1945; and finally Berlin as it is today.
