"Outstanding volume ... with its multinational and multi-archival collection of documents, it is truly unique in the field of Cold War studies ... This collection should become a model for approaching Cold War flashpoints." - Thomas Alan Schwartz, Vanderbilt University "An original and significant contribution to the study of the Cold War and particularly to the study of the background, process, and effects of the 1953 East German uprising. ... It is an invaluable service to the study of Cold War history to have these documents brought together and translated into English. I also think that more general readers will be fascinated to get a glimpse of the goings-on behind the scenes afforded by these documents." - Hope M. Harrison, George Washington University
