On 10 July, 1944, four Sherman tanks went to the aid of an infantry battalion that was surrounded at the top of Hill 122 in Normandy by elite German paratroopers.

Legal Tender: Love and Legitimacy in the East German Cultural Imagination (Signale: Modern German Letters, Cultures, and Thought) by John Griffith Urang (Cornell University Press and Cornell University Library) Price verified one hour ago

By most accounts the GDR was among the most dour and disciplined of socialist states, so devoted to the rigors of Stalinist aesthetics that the notion of an East German romantic comedy was more likely to generate punch lines than lines at the box office. But in fact, as John Urang shows in Legal Tender, love was freighted as a privileged site for the negotiation and reorganization of a surprising array of ...
