Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume, which is about youth patriotism in the GDR. It examines the relationship between young East(ern) Germans and two German states (the GDR and post-unification Germany) during a period of unique change and explores the extent to which each state has attempted to form a young generation loyal to its image and ideology, and how, in turn, young people have responded. It also investigates the loyalties of young people before and after unification in equal measure and considers the government's educational programmes to promote patriotism.
