Weimar Germany. Promise and Tragedy | German History | Oxford AcademicEric Weitz, Weimar Germany. Buse, Sudbury Ontario The illustrations in this fine book supplement a rich and clearly written text. Indeed, eight full-page colour plates reprint election posters, art and a photograph of the Einstein tower. The images illustrate well the novelty of colours and forms associated with the politics and culture of Weimar. Weitz lauds both while acknowledging the difficulties of the era.

Eric Weitz. Weimar Germany. Promise and Tragedy Review
Matthew Stibbe, Weimar Germany. Eric D. Weitz clearly has a passion for Weimar Germany, and for Weimar Berlin in particular. And who can blame him? This is arguably still the most exciting, the most controversial, the most challenging and the most stimulating period in recent German—and indeed European—history.

Eric D. With this exciting new book, Eric D. Weitz offers a timely addition to the growing array of historical surveys of the Weimar Republic. While Weitz devotes chapters to both the political and economic history of the Republic, his clear focus is on cultural matters, and as such Gay is his most immediate rival. The two works even display a similar structure, bookending synchronic analyses of Weimar culture with chapters on the Republic's birth and demise. To take on one of the seminal works of twentieth-century historiography in such direct fashion may seem a Quixotic task, but Weitz acquits himself well.
