The Mental Aftermath


Oxford University Press

This final chapter reassesses the overall mental climate between 1945 and 1949, and gauges it against other crises in the history of mentality. There is a surprising continuity and homogeneity. A common sense of injustice was the potent unifier in occupied Germany. The reconstruction of physics in post-war Germany produced new democratic structures and a firm sense of social responsibility.
