The divided past : rewriting post-war German history by Christoph Klessmann( )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tackles head on the central problems of writing German post-war history in the aftermath of unification. Since 1990, historians have been debating whether the development of the Federal Republic and the East German State constituted separate histories or whether they share what should be considered a joint past. This book addresses the specific forms of segregation and interconnectedness between the 'two Germanies' and acknowledges the asymmetry of the relationship, as well as the effect that this had on the internal and external policies of both sides. This is a book that confronts the need for historiography to break away from the traditional master narrative. It offers an alternative in the form of the differing points of view necessary to gain a new perspective on the central problem of a separate, yet joint, German post-war history. Drawing on both methodological and historiographical approaches, authors tackle this vexed problem in the context of generational and woman's history, secularization, the labour movement, and the legitimization of the "workers' state", and culminate by addressing the perennial question: how does a nation live with catastrophe?

5 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die SED-gesteuerte Geschichtsschreibung brachte zwar eine Flut von Heldengeschichten zur Arbeiterklasse im "ersten Arbeiter-und-Bauern-Staat" hervor, doch keine kritische Studie, die auch die sozialen Konturen der neuen Gesellschaft nachzeichnet. Durch eine umfassende sozial- und kulturhistorische Darstellung wären Spannungslinien und Interessenkonflikte offen gelegt worden, die das Bild "der Arbeiterklasse" bunt und widersprüchlich gestaltet hätten - nicht nur mit Blick auf die Erhebung vom 17. Juni 1953, sondern auch auf das Verhalten von Arbeitern in den Betrieben und ihr tägliches Leben. Außerdem konnte sich die SED bei ihrem Versuch, eine {OCLCbr#BB}Diktatur des Proletariats± zu verwirklichen, nie dem politischen und sozialen Magnetfeld der Bundesrepublik entziehen. Dies unterschied die Entwicklung einer "verstaatlichten" kommunistischen Arbeiterbewegung in der DDR von den osteuropäischen Volksdemokratien --
