With nearly 200 unique images photographed on the streets of Berlin by the author between 1959 and 1966, Berlin in the Cold War depicts a city which demonstrated the conflict between East and West at that time like no other. The photographs throw into focus the situation existing both before the building of the Berlin Wall, when anyone could move freely between the two halves of the city, and after its construction, when most Westerners could, with some difficulty, make the crossing. Allan Hailstone took many photographs during several visits in those years, some surreptitiously, despite restrictions placed on photography in East Berlin. These photographs provide a taste of this once dramatically divided city.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"One of the remarkable aspects of Hailstone's collection is that each photograph is labeled with an exact location and date--allowing the reader to appreciate the photographs in their historical context . . . it can offer some quirky insights too." --CNN Travel
