KIRKUS REVIEW

It seems that circumstance would have it so. . ."" -- the way it was in Berlin between wars, both explicated and intuited via a fine collection of contemporary photographs -- demonstrations, breadlines, tired, wary holiday faces, family picnics, politicians and artists, intellectuals, etc. -- with a stylish commentary. Among the facets of the feverish decade covered here are political movements, the underworld and nightlife, the arts (including cinema), sports, etc., as well as harbingers of the approaching storm. Exemplary.
