As far as the book goes its a great pictorial account of a journalists journey travelling down the "Iron Curtain" border from Germany and what he saw. If you want anything else from this book like some real political context of even locations for a lot of the photographs then this book is sadly lacking.
Great pictorial account but lacks maps and analysis of what he saw.
The iron curtain between the two Germanies gets most attention. It always had, no matter what publication.
So, my sigh goes to the poorly covered continuation of the iron curtain further south. For this price, I'll expect at least a precise description of where the photos were taken and when. Secondly, there is no excuse for the claim that the iron curtain south of german-german border was not so easily visible, when it simply is not true and witnesses more of the effort for excusing the selection of pictures, than a real quality research before undertaking the journey.
All in all, a good artbook, but could have been muuuuch better.
