Pressestimmen

Bruce's study of the [Communist] regime's repression of the CDU and LDPD contributes significantly to our knowledge of the GDR's development. Examining governmental, Socialist Unity Party (SED, Communist), East CDU, and LDPD records, he is able to trace the gradual but irreversible narrowing of the freedom of action of the non-Marxist parties and the increasing repression against independent-minded East Germans... Gary Bruce's work provides us with a valuable deepening of our understanding of growing concern among some east Germans with Communist repression and of how it may have fed into the June 17 uprising. Journal Of Modern History By locating and disseminating a rich variety of new archival material Bruce has added tremendous detail to our knowledge of this period. The book is a valuable reference tool... Canadian Journal of History A helpful step on the way to a more comprehensive understanding of the early years of GDR history. -- Mary Fulbrook, University College London Slavic Review This sobering trans-atlantic anaylsis, which does not shy away from questioning and updating previous historical positions, is in my opinion one of the the most convincing studies of the 17 June Uprising and its historical roots... I emphatically recommend that all teachers and researchers who deal with the first ten years of the Soviet Occupied Zone/GDR make use of Bruce's work. Zeitschrift fur Geschichtswissenschaft With meticulously researched documentation from local and central party archives, police reports, and the Ministry for State Security (MfS) archives, Bruce traces the history ofrepression and resistance in the words of the very people (party members, police officers, and state security employees) whose livelihoods depended on the maintenance of statehegemony. He offers unique insight into the mechanisms of dictatorial nation-building. Gfl-Journal This well-written survey of the increasing Stalinist oppression and local resistance in eastern Germany under Soviet occupation and, after 1949, in a communist state propped up by a massive military presence, recounts the building of the totalitarian state, its repressive apparatus, and the ultimately desperate resistance by noncommunist parties, organizations with networks in the West, and local citizens.
