Appeared in Choice on 1990-09:
This interesting bibliography fills a long-felt need for citations of material in English on the period immediately following WW II in Germany, covering principally the years 1945-48. Stressing popular rather than scholarly works, Paul covers an impressive range of materials, citing nearly 1,000 books, journal articles, and even films that deal with this turbulent and fascinating moment in German history. Her book includes chapters on German views of the period, views of foreign observers, fictional works, historical treatments, and an extensive filmography. Most entries are annotated, but comments are frequently so brief that they border on the meaningless. The long introduction is an interesting essay on the situation facing the Germans after the end of hostilities, but it is marred by its apologetic tone and its simplistic view of the enormous task of political and economic reconstruction that lay ahead. On the whole, this is a well-researched and well-made book which will certainly receive frequent use in public libraries of all sizes and in college and university libraries as well. -J. H. Spohrer, University of California, Berkeley
