The German Comedy: Scenes of Life After the Wall
Tauris, 1992 - 211 páginas
This work introduces us, by means of a series of vignettes, to the changes, large and small, that have taken place in Germany since the dismantling of the Wall. The author argues that the real fear about the new Germany is not the rise of neo-Nazism, but of a cult of righteousness, with its concomitant mistrust of foreigners and especially the threat of the creation of a moral vacuum for a nation so intent on forgetting the ghosts that haunt its past.
