For Cold WarMoreWhen the Berlin Wall opened unexpectedly on November 9, 1989, it marked a rupture of global significance.

For Germanys national history the event has become - next to the defeat of 1945 the most significant date in collective memory. For Cold War Europe the Berlin Wall represented a symbol of border crisis and of difference and division. This interdisciplinary volume addresses multiple consequences of the fall of the Wall: looking back at the physical barrier, its demise, and how it has been mediated in film and television- detailing the processes of restoring and revitalizing the city and the country that had been torn asunder- recognizing the new challenges of integrating socially and politically old and new minorities- and identifying how a new European identity may emerge after the Wall.

The anthology is targeted at scholars and advanced students in history, German studies, sociology, art history, and related fields.
