Uprising In East Germany 1953

The Cold War, the German Question, and the First Major Upheaval Behind the Iron Curtain

The volume is the first documented account of this early Cold War crisis from both sides of the Iron Curtain. Based on the recent unprecedented access to the once-closed archives of several member states of the Warsaw Pact, this collection of primary-source documents presents one of the most notorious events of post-war European history.

Reviews

"Outstanding volume ... with its multinational and multi-archival collection of documents, it is truly unique in the field of Cold War studies ... This collection should become a model for approaching Cold War flashpoints." - Thomas Alan Schwartz, Vanderbilt University "An original and significant contribution to the study of the Cold War and particularly to the study of the background, process, and effects of the 1953 East German uprising. ... It is an invaluable service to the study of Cold War history to have these documents brought together and translated into English. I also think that more general readers will be fascinated to get a glimpse of the goings-on behind the scenes afforded by these documents." - Hope M. Harrison, George Washington University
