BOOK DESCRIPTION

German Bodies offers a detailed and stimulating analysis of how the essentialisms of gender, blood, and race continue to operate in German cultural memory. This ‘anatomy of German nationhood,’ as Linke calls it, challenges many conventional assumptions, including my own, about discontinuities in German society following World War II. It is sure to provoke widespread debates.”
—John Borneman, author of Settling Accounts: Violence, Justice and Accountability in Postsocialist States
