From August 13, 1961 until November 9, 1989, East and West Berlin were separated by a heavily guarded wall of concrete and barbed wire. The Berlin Wall stood as a symbol of the Cold War between communist-controlled Eastern European nations and democratic Western Allies. This book debates the circumstances under which the Berlin Wall was constructed and details its fall 28 years later.

"As with books in the long-running Opposing Viewpoints series, the excerpts here clearly express opposing opinions on an issue...The effect of the entire volume is to create an informative, many-sided representation."
