Editorial Reviews

Review

'Well researched, theoretically sophisticated, and a welcome break from studies that focus on the Northern Hemisphere and its superpowers... Hosek's study can be strongly recommended to those with an interest in identity formation in the German states of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.' -- John D. Pizer German Studies Review; vol 36:03:2013

Review

‘Filling a great lack in serious work on an important and exciting topic, Sun, Sex, and Socialism provides a compelling discussion of what Cuba  has meant to the Germans both during the Cold War and post-unification. Jennifer Ruth Hosek, a consummate expert in post-war German cultural and political history and theory, has left no stone unturned in this deep, nuanced analysis. Through outstanding interdisciplinary scholarship, Hosek provides original readings and highly satisfying new insights that will appeal to audiences in cultural studies and beyond.’ (Helen Cafferty, William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of German and the Humanities, Bowdoin College)
