Dissonant Lives is not a standard 'history of Germany' in the twentieth century, or even of the German dictatorships. It is concerned with the ways in which Germans of different ages and life stages lived through this terrible period in German history, and how they interpreted, confronted, and responded to the multiple challenges of their times. In volume two, Mary Fulbrook explores the move from the Nazi dictatorship to the communism that succeeded it, examining the experiences and perceptions of selected individuals, and how major historical events affected the course of their lives and their outlooks. In doing so, she provides a new understanding of the ways in which not only the character of the German state, economy, and social structure changed over the century, but also the very character of the German people themselves.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition Fulbrook's thoughtful, erudite research, which examines how Germans made sense of their experiences living in the two German dictatorships of the 20th century, demonstrates how much we can learn from history if we examine the past through the lens of generation, as well as class, race and gender. * Hester Vaizey, Times Higher Education Supplement *
This is an ambitious book. It comes on top of a number of outstanding contributions by Mary Fulbrook ... It sidesteps the systematic comparison of the German dictatorships by looking at private experience and changing subjectvities ... In doing so, it challenges the usual assumptions about the German Volksgemeinschaft. * Bernd Weisbrod, German Historical Institute London Bulletin *
