Summary "Between 1890 and 1918, the city of Berlin was rapidly transformed into a commercial and industrial hub that also developed into an international center for innovative ideas in the visual, performing, and literary arts. Although restricted from full participation in certain areas of public life, Jews were key leaders in developing a unique, vibrant, and cosmopolitan culture. Berlin Metropolis: Jews and the New Culture, 1890-1918 vividly documents the diverse ways that Jewish artists, intellectuals, and cultural impresarios participated in this burst of creativity and promoted the emergence of modernism in Berlin and on the international scene."--BOOK JACKET.
