Germany's first democracy, the Weimar Republic, ended with the naming of Adolf Hitler as chancellor in January 1933. This study focuses on individual workers in Berlin and their strategies of confronting the daily crises which were introduced by the transformation of society after 1918 and intensified during the Depression. Tensions between the sexes and generations, among neighbors, within families, and between citizens and their political parties led to the emergence of a radical, and at times violent, neighborhood culture that signaled a loss of faith in political institutions.

'Pamela Swett's fine new study of neighbourhood radicalism in late Weimar Berlin not only fleshes out our current knowledge but recasts it. Swett demonstrates how to write a history that fully incorporates gender and generation. ... the stories of neighbourhood battles and denunciations are riveting.' The German History Society
