Synopsis: Covering the period from the turn of the century to the present, the essays composing this volume are the work of scholars in art history, film studies, literature, history and sociology. Topics covered range from early 20th-century cabaret to the dual celebration of the city's 750th anniversary, and highlight the contributions of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, George Grosz, Alfred Doblin, Siegfried Kracauer and Christa Wolf. The theme "Culture and Metropolis" is not intended simply as a celebration of Berlin as a cultural capital, the German equivalent of Paris, London or New York. These essays focus on the often uneasy relationship between the city and its culture - in literature, poetry, film, cabaret and the visual arts - as is the result of the major upheavals Berlin has experienced during this century.

From Library Journal: With the reemergence of Berlin as the capital of the new, united Germany and with its possible rebirth as the center of a unified Europe in 1992, this timely volume is welcome. It covers the city's cultural development from the turn of the century to the present, with a strong emphasis on the less-familiar aspects of artistic life. Of greatest interest are the discussions of Imperial and Weimar Berlin. Scholarly in tone and content, the essays in this collection are based on papers presented at two international conferences on Berlin, held in October 1987 in Montreal and Minneapolis. They will be appreciated by academics with an interest in Berlin's culture.-- Ian Wallace, Agriculture Canada Lib., St.
