About this book

This carefully researched history draws on archival sources as well as a wealth of new interviews with on-the-ground activists, political actors, international figures, and others to move beyond the narratives both the German and American varieties that have dominated the historical memory of German reunification.

Reviews

“The End of the Cold War is both a serious academic study and a lively and engaging read; it offers the fascinating perspectives of those who drove, and were sometimes driven by, this chaotic series of events. In general, von Plato’s considerable skills as influential and productive oral historian are evident here, along with his passion to understand better this landmark event in the recent history of his German home.” (Stephen Sloan, The Oral History Review, 2017)
