'Inspirational - with a deliciously bone-dry Berlinische humour' - Owen Hatherley Few European cities can boast a history as storied and tumultuous as that of Berlin. For more than 150 years it has been at the centre of revolutionary politics; of era-defining struggles between the Left and the Right. It has been bombed, rebuilt and carved in two. In Revolutionary Berlin, veteran tour guide Nathaniel Flakin invites you to stand in the places where this history was written, and to follow in the footsteps of those who helped write it. Through nine self-guided tours illustrated with maps and photographs, readers enter the heady world of 19th century anti-colonial struggles, the 1918 November Revolution and the 1987 May Day riots - encountering the city's workers, queer community and radical women along the way. The first English-language guidebook to tell the story of Berlin's radical history, this is a must-have for Berliners and visitors alike.
