Each title in this series offers an overview of a "global city's" history and explains why its location is significant while addressing its contemporary problems and its economy, tourism, wildlife, transportation, and management.

Facts on File
Berlin is the capital of Germany, the largest economy in Europe. Divided after World War II, the city was reunified in 1989, when the communist government of East Germany dissolved and the Berlin Wall was torn down. Since reunification the city has become the center of power in modern Germany. Despite this, its own finances are in disorder. Urban infrastructure projects have fallen years behind schedule, and the cost of renovating the former communist east has also been a heavy burden. Yet the city's low office and residential costs, its young and economically energetic population, and excellent transportation links to the rest of Europe are all conditions in its favor. Filled with unique, eye-catching photographs and engaging interviews with local residents, Berlin offers an illuminating snapshot of this vibrant city.
