Joschka Fischer and the Making of the Berlin Republic

An Alternative History of Postwar Germany

Paul Hockenos

`mre is both a lively biography of Joschka Fischer and an insightful alternative history of postwar Germany. Focusing on Fischer and the postwar generations, Paul Hockenos guides us through the flashpoints of the late sixties and seventies, from the student protests and the terrorism of the Baader-Meinhof group to the evolution of Europe's premier Green party, and brings us up to the present. He shows how the amalgam of grassroots movements that became the German Greens challenged and changed the republic's status quo, making postwar Germany's political culture more democratic, liberal and worldly along the way.
