The Berlin Reader is an essential resource for anyone interested in urban development in one of the most interesting and important metropolises in Europe. It provides scholars, students, journalists, and visitors with a survey of essential discussions on the changes Berlin has experienced since the fall of the wall. It addresses inner city renewal, housing and the local economy, and gentrification and other urban conflicts. The anthology breaks new ground by offering non-German speakers insight into reunification's controversial debates and by addressing the mixed results of Berlin's urban transformation.

Matthias Bernt works as a Senior Researcher at the Leibniz Institute for Regional Development and Structural Planning (IRS) in Erkner. He has published widely on matters of gentrification, urban shrinkage, and local politics.
