"Berlin, by Hans Christian Adam is a tour of the city as seen through the camera lens, from the end of the Prussian empire to the present. Late 19-century images of quiet courtyards and alleyways offer glimpses of a lost world. Sparsely populated boulevards dotted with vendors and carriages are ominously juxtaposed with factories under construction. But the book's real treasure is a collection of photographs from the Weimar period, that brief moment of cultural and political freedom from which Berliners drew their golden years." (Culture & Travel, New York)

"Berlin ist die aufregendste Bühne der Weltgeschichte. Ihre Narben verdankt die Stadt den Katastrophen der letzten 100 Jahre. Ein beeindruckender Bildband setzt der deutschen Hauptstadt ein Denkmal." (Vanity Fair)
