SEMINAR STUDIES IN HISTORYGeneral Editors: Clive Emsley and Gordon MartelIn the second half of the twentieth century one country, Germany, came to exemplify the ideological and physical divisions between communism and capitalism.The years 1945-63 witnessed the total defeat of the Third Reich, followed by occupation and the evolution of the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic. This book deals with the dramatic events leading to the division of Germany and the impact of the Allied occupation on the country. It traces the domestic history of the two Germanies and their position in the rival Cold War blocs, the construction of the Berlin Wall and the Federal Republic's integration into Western Europe and NATO.Alongside the wider questions of politics, economic history and cultural change, this account discusses significant events of the period in both Germanies: Adenauer's role in creating a parliamentary democracy in the Federal Republic and the West German 'economic miracle'; Social and cultural developments in the Federal Republic; How the Socialist Unity Party came to dominate the German Democratic Republic; The impact of the 5 Year Plans and collectivisation; Opposition to the regime in the German Democratic RepublicThe text concludes with a comparative summary of the two German states, and includes a selection of primary documents and contemporary photographs, together with a Glossary and Who's Who guide to key figures. DAVID WILLIAMSON is the former head of History and Politics at Highgate School, London.
