Before the deluge : a portrait of Berlin in the 1920's by Otto Friedrich( Book )

33 editions published between 1972 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 1,847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feverish, turbulent, and recklessly hedonistic, Berlin in the 1920s was the third largest city in the world, with a population of four million. It became, during this decade, the cosmopolitan crossroads of Europe. Inevitably, it gathered the brightest and most talented young people from all over Germany, but its uniqueness stemmed from its internationalism. It was the natural sanctuary for thousands of Russians fleeing the Bolshevik Revolution, and its restless spirit attracted scores of writers and artists from England and the United States. Its political history was a doomed experiment in democracy, of putsch and counter-putsch, of well-meaning liberals who struggled in vain against the tides of extremism, and of uniformed street gangs who fought for whoever hired them. Historical and political analysis is intertwined with excerpts from the diary of German diplomat Count Harry Kessler

Olympia : Paris in the age of Manet by Otto Friedrich( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in 3 languages and held by 1,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides an account of the art and politics during the Second French Empire, from 1852 to 1870, during the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte. Paris during the reign of Napoleon was a fascinating period, filled with accounts of frivolity, eccentricity, and scandal, and its figures were larger than life: Napoleon himself, Eugenie, Berlioz, Wagner, Hugo, Zola, Manet, Monet and the "great horizontals". Americans, English, Germans, Italians and Russians went to Paris for culture, art and, a bit of undisciplined hedonism. The author presents this period with an eye on the "Olympia", a painting by Édouard Manet that caused shock and astonishment when it was first exhibited in Paris in 1865. Along with analysis of Manet's paintings, the author relates the story of impressionism and the community of artists Manet inspired

Decline and fall by Otto Friedrich( Book )

12 editions published between 1970 and 1972 in 3 languages and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedrich was one of the top editors of the original Saturday Evening Post for about 10 years until its demise in the late '60s. The book is a description of all of the mis-steps that led to the collapse of the Post. It's also, inadvertently, about the change in American business that took place at that time when conglomerates were devouring (and later, evacuating) old-economy warhouses like Curtis Publishing (the publisher of the Post). It's a sad book with an elegiac quality--particularly moving are the last chapters when everyone sees the disaster coming but can't stop it. Friedrich clearly loved the Post and it shows in this wise book. The writing is fresh and clean as one would expect. -- Amazon.com
