By Dietrich Orlow

Socialist Reformers and the cave in of the German Democratic Republic explores a overlooked point of the cave in of Communism within the former East Germany. It makes a speciality of the East Germans' enthusiastic help for re-unification and the move of West Germany's political and financial associations to the East, ignoring these within the German Democratic Republic who desired to 'reform' socialism inside of, now not damage it. Their target was once to maintain an self sustaining German Democratic Republic that will pursue an alternate 'third means' among Western capitalism and Stalinist repression. Their imaginative and prescient used to be a 'better, extra attractive' socialism rather than the 'push and shove society' that they linked to Western capitalism. of their view the 'better, extra appealing' socialism could mix the Western beliefs of person freedom with Marxist notion of collective decision-making and shared wealth. The reformers failed, in fact, yet their principles and actions within the fall of 1989 are an important a part of the tale that ended in present-day Germany.
