    Ernst Dronke (1822–1891) was a journalist from the German city of Koblenz and a close associate of Karl Marx. Berlin is a comprehensive social reportage of 1840s Berlin which also contains critical views towards the state laws and the authorities of the time. As a result, the author even had to serve two years in prison.
