Recomendaciones sobre 1989 en la web

1989-2009, el 9 de noviembre se celebra el 20 aniversario de la Caída del Muro, pero en realidad todo 2009 se celebra el 20 aniversario de las revoluciones que hace 20 años disolvieron el comunismo en Europa. Se han publicado montón de notas y artículos de análisis aquí una lista que contiene sólo algunas. Si tienes alguna no dudes en sugerirla, aquí abajo en comentarios.

Especial de la BBC, Revoluciones de 1989 recuento gráfico y de radio por 1989. Excelente trabajo.

By Timothy Garton Ash
Unsurprisingly, the twentieth anniversary of 1989 has added to an already groaning shelf of books on the year that ended the short twentieth century. If we extend "1989" to include the unification of Germany and disunification of the Soviet Union in 1990–1991, we should more accurately say the three years that ended the century. The anniversary books include retrospective journalistic chronicles, with some vivid personal glimpses and striking details (Victor Sebestyen, György Dalos, Michael Meyer, and Michel Meyer), spirited essays in historical interpretation (Stephen Kotkin and Constantine Pleshakov), and original scholarly work drawing on archival sources as well as oral history (Mary Elise Sarotte and the volume edited by Jeffrey Engel). I cannot review them individually. Most add something to our knowledge; some add quite a lot. It is no criticism of any of these authors to say that I come away dreaming of another book: the global, synthetic history of 1989 that remains to be written.

Winds of Change from the East
How Poland and Hungary Led the Way in 1989
By Walter Mayr, Christian Neef and Jan Puhl
Everyone remembers the iconic images from the dramatic breaching of the Berlin Wall on Nov. 9, 1989. But the groundwork was laid elsewhere. The fate of Germany and the rest of Europe was decided in Warsaw, Budapest and Moscow.

Twenty years later: Why the Berlin Wall fell
S A Aiyar
Indian Times
We are approaching the 20th anniversary of the fall of Communism. This comprehensively refuted the Communist claim to represent the people. Yet, the claim continues, sometimes dazzling a new generation of youngsters with no inkling of why the Berlin Wall fell on November 9, 1989.

The Cold War Never Ended
Twenty years later, historians still can't figure out why the West won.
Michael C. Moynihan
We don’t know the exact hierarchy of motives, but it is certain that Chris Gueffroy was willing to leave his family and friends to avoid conscription into the army. Considering the associated risks, it’s likely that the 20-year-old was also strongly motivated to escape the stultifying sameness, the needless poverty, the cultural black hole that was his homeland. In his passport photo, he wore a small hoop earring, an act of nonconformity in a country that prized conformity above all else. But Gueffroy’s passport was yet another worthless possession, for he had the great misfortune of being born into a walled nation, a country that brutally enforced a ban on travel to “nonfraternal” states.

Will Year of Miracles Be Squandered?
Cynicism Threatens to Destroy Gains of 1989
Adam Michnik
Poland and Central Europe have prospered since the fall of communism in 1989. Today, however, Europe is faced with a great test. A leading Polish journalist and ex-dissident argues that cynisism and the lure of authoritarianism are the new threats to a European freedom secured only two decades ago.
