  • Tailoring Truthby Jon Berndt Olsen

    Berghahn Books 2015; US$ 34.95

    By looking at state-sponsored memory projects, such as memorials, commemorations, and historical museums, this book reveals that the East German communist regime obsessively monitored and attempted to control public representations of the past to legitimize its rule. It demonstrates that the regime's approach to memory politics was not stagnant, but... more...

  • State, Society and Memories of the Uprising of 17 June 1953 in the GDRby Richard Millington

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 90.00

    Condemned as a fascist putsch in the East and praised as a 'people's uprising' in the West, the uprising of 17 June 1953 shook East Germany.

  • Religion in der Politikby Jürgen Hartmann

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2014; US$ 21.03

    Die Politikwissenschaft hat sich des Religionsthemas bislang kaum angenommen. Vielmehr war und ist die Religion in der Sozialwissenschaft ein klassisches Thema der Soziologie (Weber, Durkheim, Berger, Luckmann, Luhmann). Aus einer vergleichenden Perspektive heraus will diese politikwissenschaftliche Analyse Antworten auf folgende Fragen finden: Warum... more...

  • The Benefits of International Policy Coordination Revisitedby Jaromir Benes; Michael Kumhof; Douglas Laxton; Dirk Muir; Susanna Mursula

    International Monetary Fund 2013; US$ 9.00

    This paper uses two of the IMF's DSGE models to simulate the benefits of international fiscal and macroprudential policy coordination. The key argument is that these two policies are similar in that, unlike monetary policy, they have long-run effects on the level of GDP that need to be traded off with short-run effects on the volatility of GDP. Furthermore,... more...

  • Becoming East Germanby Mary Fulbrook; Andrew I. Port

    Berghahn Books 2013; US$ 34.00

    For roughly the first decade after the demise of the GDR, professional and popular interpretations of East German history concentrated primarily on forms of power and repression, as well as on dissent and resistance to communist rule. Socio-cultural approaches have increasingly shown that a single-minded emphasis on repression and coercion fails to... more...

  • Politics of Iconoclasm, Theby James Noyes

    I.B.Tauris 2013; US$ 14.95

    From false idols and graven images to the tombs of kings and the shrines of capitalism, the targeted destruction of cities, sacred sites and artefacts for religious, political or nationalistic reasons is central to our cultural legacy. This book examines the different traditions of image-breaking in Christianity and Islam as well as their development... more...

  • Walled-Inby J. Elke Ertle

    Mentobe Press 2013; US$ 5.99

    In her memoir Walled-In, J. Elke Ertle recounts growing up in West Berlin, Germany, during the aftermath of World War II when mounting East-West tension lead to the Berlin Blockade, the Berlin Airlift, and the construction of the Berlin Wall.
