Sagi Schaefer

  • Presents a new view about the division of Germany, challenging existing knowledge and helping to explain remaining divisions after unification
  • One of the few works dealing with both East and West Germany as part of a single history rather than through comparison or contrast
  • Conveys historical processes through lively details of local events and people while discussing state-wide and international developments
  • The only study of the Iron Curtain which discusses the implications of and for agriculture and other elements of rural economy and life
