In his new book, East German Intellectuals and the Unification of Germany: An Ethnographic View (Palgrave 2017), Dan Bednarz, Assistant Professor at Bristol Community College, examines the impact of German unification on East German intellectuals. Through a series of interviews conducted first during unification and then followed up a quarter-century later Bednarz highlights how East German intellectuals dealt with the loss of their nation, and the demise of socialism and the impact this had on their lives and careers. The book demonstrates that many of the issues caused by unification between East and West Germans have yet to be entirely resolved and impacts German politics to this day.
