about

After examining East German archives, Loth (modern history, U. of Essen, Germany) argues that Stalin wanted neither a separate state on the soil of the Soviet Occupation Zone nor a socialist state in Germany, but sought a joint administration of the country by the victorious powers similar to that of the Weimar Republic. He attributes the founding of the country to the revolutionary zeal of Walter Ulbright, which was aided by the western policy of walling off communism. First published as "Stalins ungeliebtes Kind" by Rowohlt Verlag GmbH in 1994. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
