"German Essays on Film" is divided into five parts: Late Wilhelmine Germany; Weimar Republic (1918-33); Inside the "Third Reich" (1933-45); Intellectuals in Exile; and Postwar Germany: since 1945. Among the writers, thinkers, filmmakers, and scholars anthologized are: Alfred D blin, Georg Luk cs, Claire Goll, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Fritz Lang, F. W. Murnau, Joseph Goebbels, Leni Riefenstahl, Walter Benjamin, Max Horkheimer, Theodor W. Adorno, Siegfried Kracauer, R. W. Fassbinder, Wim Wenders, Gertrud Koch, and many others. The introduction by McCormick and Guenther-Pal along with generous headnotes help to put all these essays into historic perspective.
