The Jazz Republic: Music, Race, and American Culture in Weimar Germany - Social History, Popular Culture, and Politics in Germany (Paperback)Jonathan O. Wipplinger (author)
- We can order this
Using a wide array of sources from newspapers, modernist and popular journals, as well as items from the music press, this work intervenes in the debate over the German encounter with jazz by arguing that the music was no mere "symbol" of Weimar's modernism and modernity. Rather than reflecting intra-German and/or European debates, it suggests that jazz and its practitioners, African American, white American, Afro-European, German and otherwise, shaped Weimar culture in a central way.
