is the first book to critically assess, contextualize, and frame urban and
architectural photographs of Berlin’s crucial Imperial years between 1871 and
1918. Imperial Berlin emerges as a modern metropolis, only half-heartedly
inhibited by urban preservationist concerns and rather more akin to North
American cities in their bold industrialization and competing urban expansions
than to European counterparts.
