Reviews

A compelling historical narrative. [Boyd] lets her voices, skilfully orchestrated, speak for themselves, which they do with great eloquence.
A well-conceived study of a little-known corner of history.
Boyd's fresh and instructive look at 1930s Germany as described in contemporaneous travel narratives reveals a tourist destination that continued to attract visitors even as the true intentions of the Nazis became obvious.
Conveys how challenging it must have been to forecast the dimensions of the impending tragedy. Boyd notes that, in 1936, even so astute and well-intentioned an observer as the African-American educator W.E. B. DuBois -- who should have been particularly attuned to race-baiting and prejudice -- stopped short of demonizing the regime. Instead, in common with the European political leaders who failed to arrest Hitler's momentum, he temporized. 'It is extremely difficult, ' he wrote, 'to express an opinion about Germany today which is true in all respects without numerous modifications and explanations.
Extraordinary and absorbing. These firsthand glimpses of a dark time in Germany show us the complexity of appearances, and Boyd's book should be widely read.
In the 1930s, the most cultured and technologically advanced country in Europe tumbled into the abyss. In this deeply researched book, Julia Boyd lets us view Germany's astonishing fall through foreign eyes. It also offers sobering lessons for our own day when strong leaders are again all the rage.--Professor David Reynolds, author of The Long Shadow
This fresh, surprising perspective on how Nazi Germany was seen at the time will appeal to anyone looking for a new angle on that historical moment.
