Annotation 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

Im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert kam es zu einem ungeheuren Wachstum der europäischen Städte. Gleichzeitig hatten die tiefgreifenden Veränderungen, welche die Moderne ausmachen, ihren Ort vorzugsweise in den Städten. Friedrich Lenger bietet in diesem Buch ein beeindruckendes Panorama der politischen, sozialen, kulturellen und ökonomischen Geschichte der europäischen Stadt seit 1850. Dabei sieht er weit über die Metropolen Paris, London und Berlin hinaus und nimmt die europäische Landkarte von Lissabon bis St. Petersburg und von Dublin bis Konstantinopel in den Blick. Er erforscht die politischen und wirtschaftlichen Gründe für die Verstädterung Europas, die Wandlungen der städtischen Gesellschaft und die Kultur, die in den letzten 150 Jahren in den Städten entstand. Wie zum Beispiel gingen die europäischen Gesellschaften mit den sozialen, kulturellen und ethnischen Konflikten um, die in den Städten besonders deutlich zutage traten? Und wieso waren die Städte der Ort so vieler Gewalttaten, die besonders das 20. Jahrhundert prägten? Friedrich Lenger erzählt in seinem gesamteuropäisch angelegten Opus magnum die Geschichte der Moderne aus einer neuen Perspektive
