The former GDR, and particularly the fate of its intellectuals, has become the subject of novels, memoirs, and films, and it has also become the backdrop for general debates over the power of intellectuals in contemporary media and society.This new collection of essays considers the demise of the GDR and its impact on the place of intellectuals in Germany today.

Distinguished contributors from Germany, Austria, and the United States survey aspects of high and low culture, including the current nostalgia for East German film, the demise of the GDR rock scene, the pivotal role of East German poets, the consolidation and privatization of German media, and the frightening new resurgence of right-wing violence.

The result is a timely volume that charts Germanys rocky transition from one world to another.Contributors:Mitchell G.
