Mass Tourism behind the Iron Curtain: New Publications on the History of Transport, Traffic, Tourism, and Mobility in German

in Volume 5 (2014): Issue 1 (Jan 2014)

A new historiographic trend in Germany has emerged. Since 2009, scholarly publications in the formerly little-researched subfield of tourism history have proliferated on the German book market. This remarkable surge might not be surprising except for one fact: most of these publications cover the history of tourism in the former German Democratic Republic (GDR), a communist state that dissolved in 1990, leaving few remnants in the unified Germany of today.
