Mushaben discusses differing generational experiences of German reunification in an intriguing collection of in-depth interviews with public figures, tested against the detailed secondary analysis of public opinion data spanning four decades. Emerging from the effort is a set of clear generational differences & profiles, attesting to the increasingly pluralistic character of the postwar German identity.
