About the Author

Gareth Dale is a Lecturer in Politics at the University of Wales, Swansea. He has recently published a monograph entitled Between State Capitalism and Globalisation (2004). His research interests include German politics, the politics of migration and international political economy.


'Dale's insightful analysis and persuasive argument sheds new light on the traditions and motivations behind those who claimed `we are the people' in 1989 and makes a valuable contribution to the increasingly differentiated field of GDR research.' -Journal of Contemporary European Studies `This book fills an important gap in the market for books on the exceedingly useful book...Dale presents a very subtle, concise and convincing analysis of the rich and complex literature that has emerged on the protest movements of 1953 and 1989... because so little else has been published on this important subject in English, this is a very welcome book.' - West European Politics
