Berlin - portrait of a city through the centuries by MacLean, Rory, 1954-

Berlin - portrait of a city through the centuries

"Why are we drawn to certain cities? Perhaps because of a story read in childhood. Or a chance teenage meeting.

Berlin is a city of fragments and ghosts, a laboratory of ideas, the fount of both the brightes
