We are delighted to present a somewhat unorthodox line up in this
issue of German Politics and Society.
In our lead article, “A Nation in White: Germany’s Hygienic Consensus
and the Ambiguities of Modernist Architecture,” William
Rollins offers a fascinating analysis of modernist architecture in the
Weimar Republic through the lens of the bourgeois hygienic reform
movement. In particular, the article features an innovative discussion
of the centrality of the color white to this esthetic debate.
