Pressestimmen

“Well before the current vogue of cultural studies, Siegfried Kracauer pioneered a method of ethnographic critique that allowed him to reveal his society’s deepest secrets by decoding its surface manifestations. Perhaps its most stunning fruit was his classic study of the spiritual and material crisis of Weimar Republic’s salaried employees, now happily available in English for the first time. It was this work that earned Kracauer the celebrated sobriquet ‘a ragpicker at daybreak’ from his friend Walter Benjamin, who may have been wrong about the revolutionary day he thought was dawning, but who correctly saw the value in sifting through the remains of the long night that came before and was, alas, to darken still further in the years to come.”—Martin Jay

Synopsis

Few public intellectuals have had such a big impact outside the academy as Edward Said. This, the first full-length intellectual biography of the groundbreaking author of Orientalism, reveals some startling observations. Abdirahman Hussein argues that und

Kracauer's "Salaried Masses", finally translated after seventy years, is a fascinating study of Weimar society, with a particular emphasis on the workforce and the dynamics between employers and workers. This analysis, along with his collection of essays entitled "The Mass Ornament", shows a side of Kracauer that surfaces only occasionally in his more popular works like "From Caligari to Hitler", a side that is highly critical of social institutions, especially those structured upon a fascist hierarchy. His discussion on the tactics employers use to train and pacify workers is outstanding (early secretaries were taught to type with the rhythm of music coming from a phonograph; the corporate "trainers" slowly increased the speed of the record until the women were typing with sufficient speed). The role of company-sponsored sports or recreational events (baseball, picnics, etc.) does not escape scrutiny and it's amazing how relevant much of this material is in today's corporate-dominated culture. It's a brief and highly-engrossing read that anyone interested in the functions of social institutions should enjoy.

Excellent! 25. September 2008
Von Beppo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Kracauer's approach in this master study of Angelstellen ( White Color workers) is simply timeless ,nevertheless it was written in the last chapter of the Weimar era. Kracauer's approach is heterodoxy; he did not theorize and generalize , instead he gives numerous examples and provides his penetrating insight and trenchant criticism on each occasion. As Walter Benjamin pointed out , Kracauer was an outsider.Yet he definitely takes vantage point of view that is often ignored by blinded insiders whose false counscioiusneses impede them to look their social milieu forthrightly .For example, as an outsider, Kracauer knows the where these slaried Masses located in the social strata acutely but most of white color workers have bourgeios aspiration, outlook and attitude which often engendered by the place and function of their job in work places. They simply look down on blue color workers and often felt a sense of superiority. Kracauer's analysis on this case showes how his approch is more effective than traditional approch that often give blank judgement on social phenomenon. He sees that it is their social origin rather than their current position. Kracauser's lucid analysis on white color workers and entertaining industry is surprisingly modern.
It is an extremely usuful book and Kracauer's sense of irony keeps making the book highly readable . It is simply must read.
