About this book


Created in the Cold War, the two Germanies - democratic, capitalist West, communist East - have provoked a wide range of controversies and conflicting interpretations amongst historians. This book presents a clear guide to the main historical approaches, and introduces key questions concerning the stages of development, political dynamics, socio-economic and cultural profiles of the two Germanies, right up to the collapse of the communist rule in 1990.
