Perhaps more than any other modern city, Berlin has had to drastically reinvent itself with startling frequency. From the cold, harsh capital of Prussia to the arrogant 'world city' of the German Empire; from the depraved Babylon of the Weimar Republic to the last bastion of Nazism; from the 'Siamese city' of the Cold War to the new high-tech capital of a united Germany.
This book triumphantly recreates both the fabric of the city's buildings, districts, monuments and streets and the wealth of astonishing personalities who have loved or hated, created or destroyed this exhilarating, and sometimes terrifying, metropolis.
