About this book

Twenty years after its fall, the wall that divided Berlin and Germany presents a conceptual paradox: on one hand, Germans have sought to erase it completely; on the other, it haunts the imagination in complex and often surprising ways

Reviews

"This cosmopolitan and interdisciplinary volume explores the resonance of 1989 in films, novels, architecture, and city planning, as well as in domestic and international politics. Braziel and Gerstenberger have collected an impressive set of original, stimulating, and sometimes provocative essays that trace the enduring significance of the fall of the wall, both in Germany and beyond. This is an important contribution to the growing literature on the end of the Cold War." - James J. Sheehan, Stanford University

"The strength of this book is how it looks beyond the borders of Germany to examine the aftermath of 1989 in a transnational context, reading the Berlin Wall itself as 'truly a global phenomenon well beyond its fall.' Scholars of contemporary German will find compelling reading in chapters that make global connections to Japan, Israel, the Soviet Union, and China . . . Recommended." - CHOICE
