LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 2002. 304pp. This collection of fifteen original contributions, by experts in their field with access to recently-opened archives behind the former iron curtain, reveals a complex interaction between communist ideology and post-fascist society. Following recent trends in everyday history, it examines how the change of 'becoming communist' was experienced by those wielding power as well as ordinary citizens. What went on behind Politbüro closed doors? How did the police justify their mission to surveil society? What were the arguments on shopfloors during the June 1953 insurrection? How did farmers experience collectivisation? Did women feel genuinely emancipated by socialism? How did young people entertain themselves outside the classroom? Each piece is a self-contained essay, providing an in-depth introduction to recent debates, followed by original archival case-studies which bring alive the now defunct East Germany in its formative decades. This fascinating collection will be of use to scholars and students alike, on courses dealing with the history, politics and culture of modern Germany, taught at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.. Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
