Behind the Berlin Wall

East Germany and the Frontiers of Power

Patrick Major

  • The symbol of the Cold War, as seen 'from below'
  • Covers the entire history of the GDR and beyond, from 1945 to the present day
  • Provocatively argues that Beatlemania and not Kennedy, ordinary letter-writers and not dissident elites, finally undermined the Wall through people power
  • Innovative cultural approach - draws on music, film, and East German spy thrillers
