Nikolaus Pevsner was among England's greatest scholars of architecture, whose work on modernism and English architectural history transformed both subjects. Although he became renowned for his Englishness, Pevsner was born in Germany and only came to Britain at the age of 31, forced by the Nazi regime to adopt a new country and a new career. In this first volume of his biography, Games focuses on the years in Germany and the issues of nationality and identity in Pevsner's life.
