    if i wasn t a lazy bastard, i d put together a photography book called Fascist Fashion yeah, that s right americans are great at a certain form of propoganda but the real 20th century badasses, the communists and fascists and tyrants and totalitarians and terrorists in the case of the latter, their 21st counterparts really need to get their shit together unruly beards and dirty robes and timex watches Suicide Chic uh no , understand the aesthetics and sexuality of power and violence americans se [...]

    As a collection of photographs and a document of the period, this book serves as a good introduction The writing is somewhat lacking I d taken some undergraduate courses which focused on the Weimar pre WWII period in Germany It wasn t until several years after that, that I ran into this book in my roommate s collection I don t feel like I learned very much from the book itself, but the photographs were very nice And that to have such a nice collection of period photos easy available for the read [...]

    If you are a fan of the musical, CABARET, you actually have a pretty good insight into life in Weimar Berlin before the Nazis came to power It was a time of massive, runaway inflation with disposable income quickly disappearing To survive, many first sold their belongings and then sold themselves.I read this book as research for a project, and was amazed by what I found In the midst of its decline, the city of Berlin and the surrounding environs became sexualized to a degree that has likely not [...]

    There s an apocryphal story about David Bowie meeting Christopher Isherwood, author of Berlin Stories Bowie said something to the effect that it must have been exciting to be in Weimar Germany during the Roaring Twenties, what with the tycoons, transvestites, and spies all rubbing shoulders At this point Isherwood felt compelled to let the relatively younger man know that he was a writer of fiction, and that the Weimar that fed his adventurous stories was very much fabricated.The point of this a [...]

    Certainly and eye opener for me, I did not know much about the social life of Weimar Germany before starting.One thing for sure we are not inventing the wheel at the moment with all out boldness, our permissivness etc Imagine it and it was there back in the 1930 s in Germany and if it was there it must have been elsewhere as well The Gay 30 s Chicago

    The real wealth of this glossy book lies in the eclectic collection of perverse erotic photos from Weimar Berlin This wonderful book also has anecdotes on the Occult, serial killers, the rise of National Socialism, quack doctors, deranged religious cult leaders, and sex slang lingo Once again, another lavishly put together book from the sages of forbidden information and history at Feral House.

    An amazing book with a collection of photos and drawings of 1920 s Weimar Berlin that I have never seen in one place Great write ups of what you are looking at with details that are seldom written.It floors me at the sheer decadence that thrived almost 100 years ago It would give Las Vegas a run for it s money as Sin City even today.

    This book is awesome, as far as subject matter and photographs The editing and proofreading, however, leaves much to be desired Aside from that, as a reference and resource of beautiful and sometimes disturbing photos of one of my favourite time periods and cultures, this book is priceless.

    The degenerate culture of Weimar Berlin before it went up in flames during World War II Is this not the same degenerate culture that exists in America today Will we suffer a similar fate, or judgement A must read book with hundreds of photos from the era.

    Be forewarned The book is pretty lurid, well, pretty much throughout And gross But a lot of the detail is fascinating, especially the latter half which gets into the world of German cults But it s also a window into what happened in the Weimar era, which is equally entertaining and absolutely depressing.It doesn t say it outright, but it makes a case that Berlin cabaret came out of the flood of prostitution following the massive inflation of the Weimar era and a population that was desperate for [...]

    This is an excellent book if you want to get a sense of the decadent side of Weimar Culture I don t know of any other book that discusses this side of Germany between the wars in such detail There is Peter Gay s book which is fine, but it has an entirely different focus There are lots of pictures If you have an interest in gender relations, nudism, eroticism in the arts or hedonism, this book will be of interest Between WW1 and 2, Germany and in particular Berlin, was the sex capital of the worl [...]

    For what I expected to be a purely academic book, the author gives a quite revealing view of nightlife in the Weimar Republic Although I am not one who would be considered a prude or easily shocked, I can see how the fundamentalist political figures of the day were able to use the amoral zeitgeist of these people to further an agenda I also could not help but wonder if the book itself was written from this kind of viewpoint, as it seems to insinuate that the Weimar Republic was one of total mora [...]

    Mel shares his rare collection of ephemera from Berlin s glittering frenzies between the big wars of the early 20th century He brings an encyclopedic interest in documenting various transgressive practices drug culture, SM, homo sex, trans gender roles, racial exoticism I enjoyed the flow of his arguments written in a kind of chatty, 90 s hipster shorthand that assumes the reader brings a certain degree of subcultural history and knows what it s like to run around all night in the city Delighted [...]

    This book is indispensable for those interested in the cultural or sexual life of Weimar Germany There are numerous and fascinating photos and illustrations, but don t mistake this for coffee table literature The accompanying information about gay and lesbian life, prostitution, fetishism, nudity and crime etc is all good My only complaint is that the book is not longer though it is 267 pages and does not go deeply into the subject matter than it does But since it does cover a lot of ground, I [...]

    In some ways this would be better as a website or coffee table book While the photos were fascinating, like other reviewers I felt that the proofreading, editing and sometimes even the writing left a bit to be desired But it s a fun bit of eye candy for anyone interested in this period of German history and or cabaret culture.

    I enjoyed this book very much although I found the parts I was not as interested in the parts about nudists, sex magic and the occult, and sex crimes rather boring I love the aesthetics of Weimar Berlin, and the pictures plus info are exactly as fascinating and titillating, obviously as I d expected.

    Great book on Berlin pre WW2 The images are amazing, essay s are well written, smart and interesting This is a very difficult book to put down It discusses the avant garde, sex and the social norms and acceptance of very queer lives.

    A book full of rare drawings, paintings, and photographs from the seedy side of Weimar era Berlin It is extremely well researched and a great deal of information is to be had on all manner of perversions and questionable activities that were prominent in the time and place.

    This book should be great, unfortunately its full of so many factual errors and sensationalism that it s pretty pointless.

    Thorough, fascinating, essential for the topicd incredibly dirty Keep it on a high shelf if you have little kids.

    An outrageously entertaining and informative book If you only ever buy one book on this subject, this is the one to buy Superb.

    An incredible wealth of information and pictures for those interested in the decadent Berlin of the 1920 s.

    Fascinating primer on a hedonistic time and place NOT FOR KIDS, but not for strictly prurient eyes either there s some genuine history here and one that isn t often covered.

    my favorite bathroom book erotic underground berlin pre ww2 this book is hard to put down and the photographs are chillingly beautiful i like sexy things this is supersexy.
