"This significant contribution to German history pioneers a conceptually sophisticated approach to German-German relations. Poiger has much to say about the construction of both gender norms and masculine and feminine identities, and she has valuable insights into the role that notions of race played in defining and reformulating those identities and prescriptive behaviors in the German context. The book will become a 'must read' for German historians."--Heide Fehrenbach, author of Cinema in Democratizing Germany "Poiger breaks new ground in this history of the postwar Germanies. The book will serve as a model for all future studies of comparative German-German history."--Robert G. Moeller, author of Protecting Motherhood "Jazz, Rock, and Rebels exemplifies the exciting work currently emerging out of transnational analyses. [A] well-written and well-argued study."--Priscilla Wald, author of Constituting Americans

A fascinating and highly readable account of what it was like to be young and hip, growing up in East Germany in the 1950s and 1960s. Living on the frontline of the Cold War, young people were subject to a number of competing influences. For young men from the working class, in particular, a conflict developed between the culture they inherited from their parents and the new official culture taught in schools. Merging with street gangs, new youth cultures took shape, which challenged authority and provided an alternative vision of modernity. Taking their fashion cues, music and icons from the West, they rapidly came into conflict with a didactic and highly controlling party-state. Charting the clashes which occurred between teenage rebels and the authorities, the book explores what happened when gender, sexuality, Nazism, communism and rock 'n' roll collided during a period, which also saw the building of the Berlin Wall.

Since its crushing military defeat in 1945, Germany has faced occupation and division, economic success amidst Cold War bitterness, the rise and spectacular fall of the Berlin Wall and now more than a decade as a country united for only the second time in its history. It has become a slumbering economic superpower at the heart of the drive towards European unity, while divisions between east and west remain among its own people. Germany since 1945: - offers a comprehensive introduction to every stage in Germany's political, social and economic development from 1945 right up to the present day - examines, in-depth, both German states, their differences and their similarities, as well as the period of occupation 1945-49 and the year of unification 1989-90 - concludes with the first short survey in English of more than a decade of post-unification Germany, covering the period right up to the Iraq crisis in spring 2003.
