Local Lives, Parallel Histories

Villagers and Everyday Life in Divided Germany

Marcel Thomas

Studies in German History

  • Explores the imposition of two very different social and political systems in divided Germany from a bottom-up perspective, using oral history interviews and new archival sources from two case-study villages
  • Offers the first comparative study of the transformation of rural localities in the divided Germany
  • Challenges common understanding of rural localities as the traditional 'other' in modern society
