This extensive reader is structured by contrasting pairs of words that the authors use in order to deal with especially dialogic or non-dialogic moments based on arguments from the history of Berlin: Centers/Middle, City/Nature, Fiction/Reality, Image of the Other/Inherent Logic, Community/Individuality, Participation/Governance and Ground/Property. Detailled observations and interviews with Berlin actors are grouped around these conceptual pairs.
