From Library Journal:

Few architects have received more praise during their life and more criticism after their death than Mies van der Rohe. In this meticulously researched and suspenseful book, Hochman examines a particularly difficult chapter in Mies's career: the years in Germany between 1933 and 1937 when personal and artistic freedoms were under attack by Nazi leaders. Hochman chillingly re-creates this chaotic and desperate time, documenting how Germany's leading architect was pulled into the crass political machinations of the day. The result is a fascinating tour de force, shedding new light on this period of Mies's life and providing fresh insights into his architecture.

From Publishers Weekly:

Was modernist architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe a Nazi sympathizer? Or did he leave Germany because of his opposition to the regime? The author concludes that neither is the case, depicting Mies as devoted exclusively to his art and holding himself aloof from all practical matters. "This dense, heavily footnoted study will reward mainly those fervently interested in the resolution of the question of Mies's years in Berlin and in the interaction between the Nazis and the arts," determined PW .
