In this bold book, Samuel Cohen asserts the literary and historical importance of the period between the fall of the Berlin wall and that of the Twin Towers in New York. Cohen emphasizes how these works reconnect the past to a present that is ironically keen on denying that connection. At the same time, Cohen enters into the theoretical discussion about postmodern historical understanding. In a straightforward, affecting style, After the End of History offers us a new vision for the capabilities and confines of contemporary fiction.
