After the Berlin Wall: Germany and Beyond explores historical, cultural, political, and literary dimensions of the fall of the Berlin Wall and its aftermath both in Germany and internationally. Topics include German and Chinese approaches to urban planning and historical preservation, Japanese responses to German unification, walls and borders in Germany and the West Bank, and contemporary German culture in a global world. Art historians, literary scholars, and sociologists offer perspectives on the continued importance of East German culture and the legacies of socialism. Drawing from interdisciplinary methods, the collection is of value to anthropologists, historians, political theorists, and cultural critics.

Twenty years after its fall, the wall that divided Berlin and Germany presents a conceptual paradox: on one hand, Germans have sought to erase it completely; on the other, it haunts the imagination in complex and often surprising ways.
