About this book

Drawing on cultural anthropology and cultural studies, this book sheds new light on the everyday politics of heritage and memory by illuminating local, everyday engagements with Germanness through heritage fetishism, claims to hometown belonging, and the performative appropriation of cultural property.

Reviews

'Jason James has written a beautiful book, one that shows the massive virtues of anthropological research into national identity. Heritage is not just a context, but an active construction of real people in real time. Preservation and National Belonging in Eastern Germany is a nuanced portrait of people struggling to make meaning in a landscape fraught with competing pressures, and captures the complexities of that process exceptionally well.'

- Jeffrey Olick, University of Virginia, USA
