Summary When the Berlin Wall fell, so did the East German communist regime. Then began the complex task of recreating a single German state. This readable and informative narrative is written for high school and college students and the general public. A series of essays presents the social and political forces that shaped the 1989 revolution and the political decisions of both East and West Germans in the twelve hectic months before unification in 1990. Following a timeline of events, a narrative historical overview places the revolution in the context of post-World War II German history
