Fact of Fiction:
I'm a Cold War kid that was mid-stream in college studying national security issues when the Berlin Wall came down.  Couple that with my interest in alternative viewpoints on historical events and you've got a big win with "Burning Down the Haus: Punk Rock, Revolution, and the Fall of the Berlin Wall" by Tim Mohr.  Drawn out of gray and drab architectural aesthetics of the city, Mohr brings to life in full color the early punk rockers of East Berlin and the influence counterculture had in 1980s Germany.  (Amazon Link)

Quote of the Week:

"Don't die in the waiting room of the future." - East Berlin graffiti
