    Although the German economy was in ruins, thanks to punitive war reparations and hyper-inflation, Berlin in the 1920s enjoyed a remarkable cultural renaissance. Embracing new musical, artistic and intellectual movements, artists reflected political tensions and social problems with ground-breaking art, theatre, film and, most characteristically, cabaret. With historical notes, a CD and sheet music, this book explores 21 of the Kabarett's most significant songs, including Lili Marleen and Kurt Weill's Mack the Knife.
