When it was originally published in 1982, this book presented pioneering new research into the everyday life of the German working class in the crucial decades between the accession of Kaiser Wilhelm II and the Nazi seizure of power. The authors document working-class attitudes to bourgeois convention, authority and the law in the German Empire and the Weimar Republic. The book includes studies of industrial sabotage, pilfering at work, working-class drinking habits, illegitimate motherhood and the violence of adolescent ‘cliques’ in pre-Hitlerian Berlin.
