At the time of the conception of his sweeping cultural work, People of the 20th Century, August Sander had already been photographing for over 20 years. Born in 1876, Sander was a prolific recorder of all aspects of life in Germany during the first half of the twentieth century, but it is his typological work on the people of Germany for which he is most known. Sander divided his subjects into seven distinct groups and, though he worked regionally, he thought universally. Staying faithful to Sander's underlying ideas, this new edition appears in seven volumes, addressing each of the major divisions of his work. By consulting numerous original documents and other sources, the authors have succeeded in producing the most comprehensive and accurate edition to date.
