For decades after the Second World War, historians and writers depicted cultural life in Germany's Weimar Republic (1918-1933) as an unstable mixture of avant-garde experimentation, decadence, and proto-fascist tendencies. However, they defined "culture" in terms of a canon created by elites, excluding the everyday practices and popular participation that were crucial aspects of Weimar. Bringing together a remarkable array of research, this volume provides an accessible cross-section of recent work on the era's cultural history. Included here are investigations of visual and political culture, of transnational currents in the mass media and religious thought, and of the intense popular interest in sports, health, and nature. Weimar Culture Revisited attests to the extraordinarily multi-faceted nature of German history between the First World War and the Third Reich.
