Nicht nur der Atlantik - nein: Welten trennten nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg den sowjetisch besetzten Teil Deutschlands von den USA. Nahmen die amerikanischen Politiker und Diplomaten die SBZ/DDR ueberhaupt wahr? Und wenn ja, was interessierte sie? Das Ausmaa und die Art der sowjetischen Kontrolle? Die mogliche militarische Gefahrdung fuer Westdeutschland oder die Anziehungskraft des kommunistischen Systems auf die ostdeutsche Bevolkerung? Diese und weitere Fragen werden in der vorliegenden Studie beantwortet. Treffende Zitate aus der diplomatischen Korrespondenz veranschaulichen die Analyse. Daraus ergibt sich detailliert und farbig das Bild, das sich die amerikanischen Beobachter von der SBZ/DDR machten. Gleichzeitig laat sich damit die Politik der USA gegenueber Ostdeutschland erklaren, lassen sich die strikte Nichtanerkennung und die Versuche, auf die ostdeutsche Bevolkerung einzuwirken, verstehen. Die Autorin zeigt die Voraussetzungen auf, welche die amerikanische DDR-Politik bestimmten, und ordnet diese Politik in den Kontext der globalen Systemauseinandersetzung im beginnenden Kalten Krieg ein. "a any scholar or student of American policy towards Germany in the post-World War II era will find this an extremely valuable contribution to understanding U.S. perceptions and policy towards East Germany."

The communist German Democratic Republic, founded in 1949 in the Soviet-occupied zone of post-war Germany is, for many people, epitomized by the Berlin Wall; Soviet tanks and surveillance by the secret security police, the Stasi, appear to be central. But is this really all there is to the GDR¹s history? How did people come to terms with their situation and make new lives behind the Wall? When the social history of the GDR in the 1960s and 1970s is explored, new patterns become evident. A fragile stability emerged in a period characterized by 'consumer socialism', international recognition and détente. Growing participation in the micro-structures of power, and conformity to the unwritten rules of an increasingly predictable system, suggest increasing accommodation to dominant norms and conceptions of socialist 'normality'. By exploring the ways in which lower-level functionaries and people at the grass roots contributed to the formation and transformation of the GDR ­ from industry and agriculture, through popular sport and cultural life, to the passage of generations and varieties of social experience ­ the contributors collectively develop a more complex approach to the history of East Germany.

Within the span of a generation, Nazi Germany’s former capital, Berlin, found a new role as a symbol of freedom and resilient democracy in the Cold War. This book unearths how this remarkable transformation resulted from a network of liberal American occupation officials, and returned émigrés, or remigrés, of the Marxist Social Democratic Party (SPD). This network derived from lengthy physical and political journeys. After fleeing Hitler, German-speaking self-professed "revolutionary socialists" emphasized "anti-totalitarianism" in New Deal America and contributed to its intelligence apparatus. These experiences made these remigrés especially adept at cultural translation in postwar Berlin against Stalinism. This book provides a new explanation for the alignment of Germany’s principal left-wing party with the Western camp. While the Cold War has traditionally been analyzed from the perspective of decision makers in Moscow or Washington, this study demonstrates the agency of hitherto marginalized on the conflict’s first battlefield. Examining local political culture and social networks underscores how both Berliners and émigrés understood the East-West competition over the rubble that the Nazis left behind as a chance to reinvent themselves as democrats and cultural mediators, respectively. As this network popularized an anti-Communist, pro-Western Left, this book identifies how often ostracized émigrés made a crucial contribution to the Federal Republic of Germany’s democratization.
