Book summary: This is a collection of essays that grew out of a conference at the University of Colorado, where international scholars met to assess the post-war transformation of German Studies from 1945-1995. In the first section of the book, scholars address the interesting problems of nationalism and anti-Semitism in modern and contemporary Germany. The second section raises issues concerning German 'Other', providing innovative views on the hybrid state of German cultural production. The third section offers unique insight into the apparently forbidden areas of artistic creation after Adorno's initial anti-graven image dictum in the face of Shoah atrocities. In the final section, the authors explore German literature and literary studies as international vehicles for reflection on the Holocaust and for the ongoing renewal of national identities.
