"Remapping Modern Germany after National Socialism offers an excellent introduction to the subject and is a sound basis for further studies on this topic."—Imago Mundi

"A stirring book, shedding new light on geography’s and cartography’s important role in the reconstruction of Germany’s political identity after 1945....Mingus’s careful analysis proves how indispensable geographic-cartographic infrastructure is for a territory’s governance. Thus, the book makes an entirely convincing contribution to a transnational history of the Cold War."—Ute Wardenga, Leibniz-Institute for Regional Geography, Leipzig

"Mingus has thoughtfully revealed something of the saga of Germany, 1945-1961, with special reference to geographers, historians, political scientists, and the resultant territorial settlement attendant upon World War II. Investigated are the vicissitudes of the German undertaking, de-nazification, a two-state solution, and occupation, which in sum provide keen insight relative to this unique period. Six chapters and end-notes are accompanied by twenty maps and illustrations to provide a fine precis of this vexed and contentious period."—Geoffrey Martin, author of All Possible Worlds: A History of Geographical Ideas

"An interesting and well-told story that does a particularly strong job of showing how important cartographic work is to the real construction of political realities."—Matthew Hannah, professor of cultural geography, University of Bayreuth, Germany
