The File: A Personal History
The File: A Personal
"Eloquent, aware and scrupulous . . . a rich and instructive examination of the Cold War past." --The New York TimesIn 1978 a romantic young Englishman took up residence in Berlin to see what that divided city could teach him about tyranny and freedom. Fifteen years later Timothy Garton Ash--who was by then famous for his reportage of the downfall of communism in Central Europe--returned. This time he had come to look at a file that bore the code-name "Romeo." The file had been compiled by the Stasi, the East German secret police, with the assistance of dozens of informers. And it contained a meticulous record of Garton Ash's earlier life in Berlin. In this memoir, Garton Ash describes what it was like to rediscover his younger self through the eyes of the Stasi, and then to go on to confront those who actually informed against him to the secret police. Moving from document to remembrance, from the offices of British intelligence to the living rooms of retired Stasi officers, The File is a personal narrative as gripping, as disquieting, and as morally provocative as any fiction by George Orwell or Graham Greene. And it is all true."In this painstaking, powerful unmasking of evil, the wretched face of tyranny is revealed." --Philadelphia Inquirer

The East German Handbook---multilingual
The East German
For 40 years, the Cold War dominated the world stage. East and West Germany stood at the frontlines of the global confrontation, symbolized by the infamous Berlin Wall, which separated lovers, friends, families, coworkers, and compatriots.The Wende Museum in Los Angeles, California, is named after the period of change immediately following the wall's destruction. It was established in 2002 to study the visual and material culture of the former Eastern Bloc, and, with physical and psychic distance, to foster multiple perspectives on this multilayered history that continues to shape our world.This encyclopedic volume features around 2,000 items from its extraordinary collections. Based on our XL-sized volume, this edition includes a full spectrum of art, archives, and artifacts from socialist East Germany: official symbols and dissident expressions, the spectacular and the routine, the mass-produced and the handmade, the funny and the tragic.Accompanying these remnants of a now-vanished world are texts from scholars and specialists from across Europe, Canada, and the United States, with themes ranging from the secret police to sexuality, from monuments to mental-mapping. More than 800 pages, featuring around 2,000 objects.A smaller, more accessible version of our XL-sized volume, ...

The Stasi Files : East Germany's Secret Operations Against Britain
The Stasi Files : East Germany's Secret Operations
The definitive, revelatory account of the GDR's Cold War espionage activities against the UK: their goals, methods, sources -- and recruits. Before the collapse of Communist East Germany the country ran one of the most extensive intelligence networks in the world. Its secret service, the Stasi, consisted of as many as 150,000 agents by the time of its demise in 1990. Much more than a junior partner to the Soviet Union's KGB, the Stasi was in fact a highly professional and ruthless organisation which was dedicated to principles of conspiratorial aggressiveness and the protection of the Communist cause. Anthony Glees is one of the last researchers to gain access to the Stasi Archive in Berlin before it was closed. Drawing on documentary evidence in the files he presents a fascinating portrait of the Stasi's interest in, among other topics, the burgeoning CND movement in Britain and the Labour Party's prospects of holding office. Along the way he explains the elaborate structure of intelligence officers, agents and sources who together constituted the troops on the ground for the Stasi's campaign against the UK. Revelatory and controversial, THE STASI FILES is the most important book on espionage to appear since THE MITROKHIN ARCHIVE.

The Stasi Files Unveiled: Guilt and Compliance in a Unified Germany (Memory & Narrative)
The Stasi Files Unveiled: Guilt and Compliance in
In 1992 the massive files of East Germany's infamous Ministry for State Security, the Stasi, were made publicly available and thousands of former East Germans began to confront their contents. Finally it was possible for ordinary citizens to ascertain who had worked for the Stasi, either on a full-time basis or as an "unofficial employee," the Stasi's term for an informer. The revelations from these documents sparked feuds old and new among a population already struggling through enormous social and political upheaval. Drawing upon the Stasi files and upon interviews with one-time informers, this book examines the impact of the Stasi legacy in united Germany. Barbara Miller examines such aspects of the informer's experience as: the recruitment procedure; daily life and work; motivation and justification. She goes on to consider the dealings of politicians and the courts with the Stasi and its employees. Her analysis then turns to the way in which this aspect of recent German history has been remembered, and the phenomenal impact of the opening of the files on such perceptions of the past. The Stasi Files Unveiled: Guilt and Compliance in a Unified Germany offers important new perspectives on the nature of individual and collective memory and is a fascinating investigation of mode...
