Summary
  • "In Berlin, Large argues that in the political history of the past century, no city has played a more prominent - though often disastrous - role than Berlin. At the same time, Berlin has also been a dynamic center of artistic and intellectual innovation - one of the great cultural meccas of our time. If Paris was the "Capital of the Nineteenth Century," Berlin was to become the signature city for the next hundred years."
  • "Large's sweeping narrative is framed by the two German unifications of 1871 and 1990. Between these two events several themes run like a thread through the city's history: a persistent inferiority complex, despite its standing as a major European metropolis; a distrust amongst many ordinary Germans and the national leadership of the "unloved city's" electric atmosphere, fast tempo and tradition of unruliness; its status as a magnet for immigrants, artists, intellectuals and the young; a heterogeneity that transformed the once sleepy Prussian outpost into a sophisticated metropolis yet also fostered resentment over the resulting wrenching social changes; the opening up of social, economic and ethnic divisions as sharp as the one created by the Wall."--Jacket
