Ostalgie, German Unification and the Avant-garde. How did the GDR become so hip? In dedicating his book of essays to this question Paul Cooke offers a thought-provoking study of interest to scholars of Germany, Eastern Europe, colonial and postcolonial studies. Cooke aims to trace the development of the ways in which both East and West Germans have dealt with unification through a range of media and cultural phenomena representing the GDR, its past and experience. For those scholars interested in colonial and postcolonial studies this book may come as a welcome surprise or a provocation. Ironically, however, Cooke argues it is the realm of culture that, at times, has most clearly demonstrated the continued divisions between East and West.

When the Berlin Wall came down and the two Germanies were reunited, culture was held up to be one of the keys to national unity. Ironically, however, Cooke argues it is the realm of culture that, at times, has most clearly demonstrated the continued divisions between East and West. Taking culture as broadly defined, this book examines state memorialization, literature, television, film, and the internet, to map out the problematic path of German national identity as it struggles to deal with the legacy of division. Drawing on postcolonial theory, the author examines the contention that the East has been colonized by the West, looking at how such perceptions have pervaded both east and west German culture. Cooke also discusses the complex phenomenon of nostalgia for East Germany, as evident in the recent international hit film Good Bye, Lenin! Rich in detail and first-hand accounts, this book provocatively asks how far East Germany can be read today as a postcolonial culture.
