Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary 'Love at Last Sight' is a history of dating in the modern metropolis. It opens with the seemingly simple question, 'How did single people meet and fall in love in new big cities like Berlin at the turn of the century?' but what emerges from this investigation of daily newspapers, diaries, serial novels, advice literature, police records, and court cases is a world of dating and relationships that was anything but simple.
Audience Specialized.
