"The most complete treatment of East German education that has appeared in English, yet most of the book does not touch upon schools or schooling. Rodden's work evokes the dilemas of everyday totalitarianism with unusual poignancy, and it is to be warmly recommended to all those wanting to probe the deeper currents of social reality in the 'former East Germany.'" --Central European History
"A wealth of interesting stories about the process of unification as experienced by individual Germans and about Rodden's personal grappling with the merits and disadvantages of socialism and capitalism."--H-Net
"This vividly written, often idiosyncratic, even polemical education history offers a colorful prism through which to view East Germany in the cold war and subsequent German reunification."-- History: Reviews of New Books
