Product Description


"[The volume] offers a stimulating overview that widens our understanding of the socio-cultural dimension underlying National Socialism." --Historische Zeitschrift

"[The author] employs a refreshing and convincing example for a different kind of scholarship about the Cold War: gender. Just as the study of men and women is more complex than lumping together all men under the rubric of masculinity or all women into a vague femininity, argues Fenemore, the GDR must be understood within the context of its relationship with Cold-War West Germany." --Journal of Contemporary History

"Focusing on the behavior of young people in daily life, the author effectively illustrates how the Communist Party failed to create the anti-fascist consensus necessary to legitimize the regime." --Choice

"...a fascinating and highly readable account of what it was like to be young and hip, growing up in East Germany in the 1950s and 1960s." --sirreadalot.com --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
