Berlin before the wall :a foreign student's diary with sketches Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"The author, currently professor of modern history at Vassar, spent about a year in West Berlin in 1953—54, doing research toward a higher degree. This book assembles the notes and stetches making up his diary for the period, and recounting in a lively and occasionally penetrating fashion his experiences chiefly in West, but occasionally in East Berlin. It makes no pretense at historical significance, but it has an endearing quality of immediacy and projects a credible image of a West Berlin very different from the town familiar to many more recent visitors." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)

Book News Annotation:

Liang's (history, Vassar) account of Berlin life begins with his arrival in the Fall of 1953 and concludes in October of 1954. It records the political events of the time in diary form, mixed with evocative pencil drawings. No index or references.
