The reunification of Germany in 1989 may have put an end to the experiment in East German communism, but its historical assessment is far from over. Where most of the literature over the past two decades has been driven by the desire to uncover the relationship between power and resistance, complicity and consent, more recent scholarship tends to concentrate on the everyday history of East German citizens.

Paul Bettsis Lecturer in Modern German History at the University of Sussex in Brighton, England. He is the coeditor ofPain and Prosperity: Reconsidering Twentieth-Century German History(2003).
