Walking in Berlin : a flaneur in the capital
Hessel, Franz, 1880-1941, author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : The MIT Press, [2017]
Translator's Foreword -- The Flaneur's Return / by Walter Benjamin -- The Suspect -- I Learn a Thing or Two -- A Bit of Work -- Fashion -- Lust for Life -- A Tour -- The Animal Palaces -- Berlin's Boulevard -- The Old West -- Tiergarten -- The Landwehr Canal -- Kreuzberg -- Tempelhof -- Hasenheide -- Through Neukölln Toward Britz -- Steamship Music -- To the East -- The North -- The Northwest -- Friedrichstadt -- Dönhoffplatz -- The Newspaper District -- The Southwest -- Afterword.

"Franz Hessel was an observer par excellence of the increasingly hectic metropolis that was Berlin in the late 1920s. In Walking in Berlin, originally published in Germany in 1929, he captures the rhythm of Weimar-era Berlin, recording evidence of the seismic shifts shaking German culture at the time. Nearly all of the pieces take the form of a walk or outing, focusing either on a theme or part of the city, and many end at a theatre, cinema, or club. Hessel effortlessly weaves historical information into his observations, displaying his extensive knowledge of the city. Today, many years after the Nazi era and the postwar reconstruction that followed, the areas he visited are all still prominent and interesting. From the Alexanderplatz to Kreuzberg, his record of them has become priceless. Superbly written, and as fresh today as when it first appeared, this is a book to be savoured"--

"Isidor von Sevilla stellte in seinen Etymologien das um 600 vorhandene Wissen der Antike zusammen. Ausführungen zu Kleidung und Stoffen waren dabei zentral. Ca. 450 Jahre später findet sich dieses Wissen überarbeitet im Summarium Heinrici, dem bedeutendsten Lehr- und Nachschlagewerk des Mittelalters. Am Beispiel des Bereichs 'Kleidung' liefert der vorliegende Band neben den Quellen und Übersetzungen zum ersten Mal auch Kommentare und Überblicksdarstellungen. Damit schaffen die Autoren erstmals eine Grundlage für die weiterführende Beschreibung der übrigen in den Etymologien behandelten Lebensbereiche."--

The kingdom of Württemberg and the making of Germany, 1815-1871
Ashton, Bodie A., author
London ; Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2017
List of figures -- List of maps -- Acknowledgements -- Note on translation -- list of abbreviations -- Introduction -- States and the nation in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries -- Independence and early south German particularism -- Models of German unification, 1815-1848 -- The years of prophecy and change, 1848-1849 -- Counterrevolution, reaction and reappraisals, 1850-1859 -- Six years of autumn, 1860-1866 -- The unification of Germany, 1866-1871 -- Remembering and forgetting Württemberg, 1871-1914 -- Conclusion -- Notes -- Bibliography -- Index.

"This book examines the 1871 unification of Germany through the prism of one of its 'forgotten states', the Kingdom of Württemberg. It moves beyond the traditional argument for the importance of the great powers of Austria and Prussia in controlling German destiny at this time. Bodie A. Ashton champions the significance of Württemberg and as a result all 38 German states in the unification process, noting that each had their own institutions and traditions that proved vital to the eventual shape of German unity. The Kingdom of Württemberg and the Making of Germany, 1815-1871 demonstrates that the state's government was dynamic and in full control of its own policy-making throughout most of the 19th century, with Ashton showing a keen appreciation for the state's domestic development during the period. The book traces Württemberg's strong involvement in the national question, and how successive governments and monarchs in the state's capital of Stuttgart manoeuvred the country so as to gain the greatest advantage. It successfully argues that the shape of German unification was not inevitable, and was in fact driven largely by the desires of the Mittelstaaten, rather than the great powers; the eventual Reichsgründung of January 1871 was merely the final step in a long series of negotiations, diplomatic manoeuvres and subterfuge, with Württemberg playing a vital, regional role. Making use of a wealth of primary sources, including telegrams, newspaper articles, diary entries, letters and government documents, this is a vitally important study for all scholars and students of 19th-century Germany."--
