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

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in German and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
European cities in the modern era, 1850-1914 by Friedrich Lenger( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In European Cities in the Modern Era, 1850-1914 Friedrich Lenger analyses the demographic and economic preconditions of European urbanization, compares the extent to which Europe's cities were characterized by heterogeneity with respect to the social, national and religious composition of its population and asks in which way differences resulting from this heterogeneity were resolved either peacefully or violently. Using this general perspective and extending the scope by including Eastern and Southern Europe the dominant view of Europe's prewar cities as islands of modernity is challenged and the ubiquity of urban violence established as a central analytical problem."--Publisher's website
