Abstract:

"It's Berlin in the 1990s. A city split for forty years by the Wall is trying to knit itself back together - a city where former Stasi men and their victims now pass one another in the street, and where, just under the surface, the Nazi past now lies buried. When Anna Funder hears of ordinary people who resisted the fearsome Stasi - the Communist regime's secret police - she sets out to investigate the extraordinary stories from the underbelly of the most perfected surveillance state of all time, the former East Germany." "Stasiland is a look at courage, conscience and the extremes of what humans will do to one another."--BOOK JACKET.
