This book puts the illegal economy of the German capital during and after World War II into context and provides a new interpretation of Germany's postwar history. The black market, it argues, served as a reference point for the beginnings of the two new German states.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This fascinating book responds to a strange paradox in the history of Germany after 1945. ... Zierenberg's book gives readers a rich cultural and social as well as economic history of Berlin's black markets. ... the publishers clearly made the right decision when they decided to have Zierenberg's book translated into English ... thus making it available to a wider audience of English-speaking readers. I think they will find this book as fascinating and thought provoking as I did." (David F. Crew, Journal of Modern History, Vol. 89 (4), December, 2017)

"Central Europeanists with a focus on urban history, the history of everyday life, and the culture of consumption in Berlin during the first half of the twentieth century will read Malte Zierenberg's recent monograph with keen interest and appreciation. ... Berlin's Black Market offers a fresh perspective on Berliners' experiences through several transitional periods with an emphasis on the micro-level economy and the culture of consumption. The book's sophisticated methodological approach is to be applauded." (Matthew Berg, H-German, H-Net Reviews, h-net.org, November, 2016)
