Gay Berlin : birthplace of a modern identity by Robert Beachy( Book )

26 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A detailed historical look at the surprising ways in which the uninhibited urban sexuality, sexual experimentation and medical advances of pre-Weimar Berlin created and molded our modern understanding of sexual orientation and gay identity. Long known for the friendly company of its "warm brothers" (German slang for men who love other men), Berlin, even before the turn of the twentieth-century, was a place where educators, activists, and medical professionals could explore and begin to educate both themselves and Europe about new and emerging sexual identities. From Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, a German activist described by some as the world's first openly gay man, to the world of Berlin's vast homosexual subcultures-tolerated and monitored by the police commissioner through the "Department of Homosexuals and Blackmailers"--To a major sex scandal that enraptured the daily newspapers and shook the court of Emperor William II, and on through some of the world's first sex reassignment surgeries, Beachy deftly guides the reader through past events and developments that continue to shape and influence the way we think of sexuality to this day. Gay Berlin is certain to be considered a foundational study"--
Women, business and finance in nineteenth-century Europe : rethinking separate spheres( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"International contributors take a new look at women's roles in finance and investment, family-owned businesses, retailing, service activities, and the artisanal trades. They reveal that elite and middle-class women often manipulated financial resources in a highly sophisticated manner. Family-owned businesses and retail trade geared to women, such as grocery and fashion, also offered women opportunities. Throughout, the book considers the impact of industrialization on women's economic agency and examines women in the accommodation business in London, female entrepreneurs in Italy, prostitutes in Germany, family businesses in Sweden, women in publishing in Spain and much more."--Jacket

"This volume provides a new interpretation of the social and cultural context that shaped German political reforms from the mid-eighteenth to the mid-nineteenth century. Focusing on Electoral Saxony, the analysis demonstrates how the commercial city of Leipzig molded the Saxon Enlightenment and then had a powerful influence on reforming the territorial state."--Jacket
"Ich bin schwul" : W.H. Auden im Berlin der Weimarer Republik by Robert Beachy( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Während seiner Zeit in Berlin 1929 traf der englische Schriftsteller W. H. Auden in der Straßenbahn eine Frau, die mit ihm zu flirten begann. In seinem unpublizierten >>Berliner Tagebuch<< beschreibt der angehende Dichter seine imaginäre Antwort: >>Ich wollte ihr sagen: Ich bin schwul<<. Obwohl Auden kaum Deutsch sprach, konnte er jene perfekte Erwiderung in einer Berliner Mundart formulieren. Die Wahl seiner Worte zeigt dabei sein Bewusstsein für die eigene sexuelle Orientierung. Das Weimarer Berlin wird schon lange als Spielplatz sexueller Minderheiten gehandelt. Die Hauptstadtabenteuer ausländischer und auch deutscher Besucher waren jedoch mehr als bloßer >>Sex-Tourismus<<. Das Berlin zur Zeit der Weimarer Republik war insofern einzigartig, als es Auden, seinen Freunden und Gleichgesinnten wie kein anderer Ort sonst erlaubte, Selbstbewusstsein und Sensibilität zu entwickeln. So boten die lebhafte wissenschaftliche Erforschung der Homosexualität, der juristische Reformaktivismus sowie das offene homosexuelle Milieu mit eigenständigen Medien und eigenem Nachtleben Raum für die Entwicklung einer homosexuellen Identität des Individuums wie auch der >>imagined gay community<<
