Summary

Berlin is the city where the world goes to party, but also to live and to experiment with new ideas: social movements, technologies, fashion, art, music, sexuality and multiculturalism. The Berliners are creative, hedonistic, weird and some of the most tolerant people on earth. This guide is a road map for expats and long-term visitors on how to settle in Berlin with the greatest of ease. 
It begins with an overview of Berlin's complex and fascinating history, and will continue explaining the daily life and how Berliners tick. Readers learn, how to get a visa and residence permit, rent an apartment or buy a condominium, register with the authorities, get the utilities and telecommunications up and running, open a bank account, find a job, start a business, thrive on a budget, attend the university, enroll their children in school, and keep in the pink of health. And much more. 
It is packed with insider tips on the notorious German bureaucracy and lists key contacts, sources of information and available support. A useful vocabulary and a comprehensive resource list for further research are also included. Finally, the aim of this book is to encourage you to discover this exciting city for yourself.

    The History and Uncertain Future...

    "Persuasively argues that our fixation with writing by hand is driven more by emotion than evidence, as it is perceived to be inextricably linked to our history, core values and individual identities."--Los Angeles Times 
     
    The future of handwriting is anything but certain. Its history, however, shows how much it has affected culture and civilization for millennia. 
     
    In the digital age of instant communication, handwriting is less necessary than ever before, and indeed fewer and fewer schoolchildren are being taught how to write in cursive. Signatures--far from John Hancock's elegant model--have become scrawls. In her recent and widely discussed and debated essays, Anne Trubek argues that the decline and even elimination of handwriting from daily life does not signal a decline in civilization, but rather the next stage in the evolution of communication. 
     
    Now, in The History and Uncertain Future of Handwriting, Trubek uncovers the long and significant impact handwriting has had on culture and humanity--from the first recorded handwriting on the clay tablets of the Sumerians some four thousand years ago and the invention of the alphabet as we know it, to the rising value of handwritten manuscripts today. Each innovation over the millennia has threatened existing standards and entrenched interests: Indeed, in ancient Athens, Socrates and his followers decried the very use of handwriting, claiming memory would be destroyed; while Gutenberg's printing press ultimately overturned the livelihood of the monks who created books in the pre-printing era. And yet new methods of writing and communication have always appeared. Establishing a novel link between our deep past and emerging future, Anne Trubek offers a colorful lens through which to view our shared social experience.
