Between the two world wars, Germany managed - despite all the political upheavals it was experiencing - to attract extremely large numbers of British travellers and tourists. During the Weimar period in particular, Germany attracted visitors from virtually every section of British society. In this book, Colin Storer moves beyond the traditional scholarly focus on figures such as Christopher Isherwood and John Maynard Keynes to provide the first broad comparative study of British intellectual attitudes towards Weimar Germany. Based on original research and using striking examples from intellectual life and literature it highlights the diversity of British attitudes, challenges received opinions on areas such as the 'inevitable collapse' of the Republic, and seeks to establish why Weimar Germany was so appealing to such a variety of individuals.
Colin Storer is Teaching Fellow in Modern German Histor at the University of Warwick.
