Hester Vaizey's is the sort of scholarship I relish: detailed, plentiful new material to satisfy historians and sociologists, but respectful too of a more general readership. * Rebecca K Morrison, Independent *
Above all, her honesty, both regarding her methodology and her reactions to the interviewees' stories, is refreshing. * The Writer's Drawer *
A carefully-researched exploration of a disappeared society and the complexities of transition from one set of social and economic expectations to another. This is a thorough and sympathetic account of Germany's Unification generation. * Anne McElvoy, The Economist, and author of The Saddled Cow: East Germany's Life and Legacy *
Born in the GDR is a helpful contribution to an understanding of the complexities of life then and its consequences now. * Ulrike Zitzlsperger, Times Higher Education *
