this book represents a necessary contribution to comparative work on the occupation of Germany. * Rebecca Boehling, American Historical Review *
Jessica Reinisch has written an excellent book, touching on both the administration of post-1945 Germany and post-war public health care. She deals with general conditions of health care for the defeated country's population, including many non-Germans such as displaced persons (DPs) and Eastern European Jews. Her depictions of overall conditions are interspersed with those of particular situations governed by individual victor powers: the United States, Britain, France and the Soviet Union. Hence she provides a five-dimensional view. * Michael H. Kater, English Historical Review *
Perils of Peace is a fascinating contribution determined by a broad range of sources that makes it profitable reading for historians of medicine and historians of German occupation alike. * Anita Winkler, Social History of Medicine *
[A] meticulous, archivally based comparative analysis of their evolution from wartime planning to postwar implementation throughout the occupation period, in all four occupation zones. * Pertti Ahonen, Journal of Modern History *
