Towards an urban nation Germany since 1780 by Friedrich Lenger ( )
13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For many people, urbanization and the growth of big cities promised new lives, employment opportunities and increased prosperity. And in the long run this fundamental process of social change witnessed the spread of a new urban way of life. In the short run, however, the rapid urbanization of German society brought a range of pressing social, political and environmental concerns. Rapidly expanding cities meant overcrowding, sickness, pollution and growing inequality between the rich and poor. While some of these problems were largely overcome in the course of the twentieth century, German cities faced new challenges due to the Nazi dictatorship, the bombing of World War II, and the interventions of city planners in both the GDR and the Federal Republic. This book explores the nature and impact of Germany's urbanization during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and emphasizes the range of solutions and reforms, both private and governmental, introduced to address these issues. What did these new cities look like? How did they develop? Who ran them? How were cities perceived by their inhabitants? Exploring these and other key questions, this book makes a vital new contribution to studies of urbanization, one of the most fundamental factors in the creation of the modern era

Die tiefgreifenden Veränderungen, welche die europäische Moderne prägten, hatten ihren Ort vor allem in den Städten. Diese wurden im Verlauf des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts zum Lebensumfeld der meisten Menschen. Welche Auswirkungen das hatte, wurde von den Zeitgenossen jedoch selten wirklich verstanden. Friedrich Lenger entfaltet in diesem Buch ein beeindruckendes Panorama der politischen, sozialen, kulturellen und ökonomischen Geschichte, welche die europäische Stadt seit der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts erlebt hat. Wie gingen die europäischen Gesellschaften mit den sozialen und ethnischen Konflikten um, die in den Städten besonders deutlich zutage tragen? Und wieso waren die Städte der Ort so vieler Gewalttaten, wie sie besonders das 20. Jahrhundert prägten? Friedrich Lenger sieht weit über die Metropolen Paris, London und Berlin hinaus und nimmt die europäische Landkarte von Lissabon bis St. Petersburg, von Dublin bis Konstantinopel in den Blick. Sein gesamteuropäisch angelegtes Opus magnum erzählt die Geschichte der Moderne aus einer neuen Perspektive. Friedrich Lenger, geb. 1957, ist Professor für Mittlere und Neuere Geschichte an der Universität Giessen. Er ist der Autor von Bd. 15 der Neuauflage des "Gebhardt": Industrielle Revolution und Nationalstaatsgründung (1849-1870er Jahre) (2003)
