Fringe Voices: An Anthology of Minority Writing in the Federal Republic of Germany

Fringe Voices: An Anthology of Minority Writing in the Federal Republic of Germany Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since German unification, there have been many reports about xenophobia in Germany and the government has attempted to stem the new wave of racism. In contrast, the voices of the victims of racism — refugees, asylum seekers, immigrants — are seldom heard.

This first anthology of essays by significant writers from minority groups in Germany — Turks, Afro-Germans, German Jews, Eastern Europeans and others — sheds new light on the diverse experiences of minority groups living in Germany today. It also introduces to English-speaking audiences innovative literary talents whose contribution to German culture has not yet received the attention it deserves.

Students of contemporary German culture who wish to increase their understanding of the changing nature of German society will find this book invaluable. It will also be of interest to anyone following the rise of xenophobia in Germany, its possible causes, and the changing politics of immigration.
