She is the author of two books: From East Germans to Germans: The New Post-Communist Elite and Crafting Democracy: Regional Politics in Post-Communist Europe. Her latter book project analyzes the European Union’s efforts to foster a sense of common history, collective memory, and trans-European identity.
