Communist East Germany - officially dubbed the "Workers' and Peasants' State" - presented a facade of unity, between factory and farmer, male and female, young and old. The reality behind the rhetoric was, however, far more diverse. This collection of 15 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. Each essay is self-containe , providing a valuable introduction to recent debates, followed by original archival case-studies to bring alive the now defunct East Germany in its formative decades.
