German Culture, Politics, and Literature Into the Twenty-First Century: Beyond Normalization
Hardcover. 254 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.1in. x 0.9in.This volume features sixteen thought-provoking essays by renowned international experts on German society, culture, and politics that, together, provide a comprehensive study of Germanys postunification process of normalization. Essays ranging across a variety of disciplines including politics, foreign policy, economics, literature, architecture, and film examine how since 1990 the often contested concept of normalization has become crucial to Germanys self-understanding. Despite the apparent emergence of a new Germany, the essays demonstrate that normalization is still in question, and that perennial concerns -- notably the Nazi past and the legacy of the GDR -- remain central to political and cultural discourses and affect the countrys efforts to deal with the new challenges of globalization and the instability and polarization it brings. This is the first major study in English or German of the impact of the normalization debate across the range of cultural, political, economic, intellectual, and historical discourses.
