Publisher Comments:

First published in France in 2001 by and#201;ditions Belin under the title Le communisme au quotidien, Sandrine Kottand#8217;s book examines how East German businesses and government carried out communist practices on a daily basis and how citizens and workers experienced the conditions created by the totalitarian state in their daily lives. Kott undertakes a social analysis of the Communist Partyand#8217;s grasp on state enterprises and the limits of its power. She then analyzes the enterprises themselves and the social, generational, and gender tensions that had a profound impact on the lived experience of socialism. Finally, she considers the development and acceptance of a complex set of rituals and gift exchanges that masked latent conflicts while providing meaning to socialismand#8217;s role in ordinary life.

Synopsis:
