Detailed item info

Developments in German Politics provides a wide ranging analysis of the dynamics of unification, and its implications for political institutions and the party system in the new Federal Republic. It gives an account of the key issues on the new political agenda - ecomic reconstruction, social integration, environment policy, immigration - and assesses the identity of the new Germany, and its role in Europe and the wider international system. The book is designed as a replacement volume for Developments in West German Politics welcomed on publication as: '...Comprehensive and combines admirably the virtues of concision and accessibility required for a textbook and those of cogent intellectual analysis...' Peter J.Humphreys, Journal of Common Market Studies '...A comprehensive introduction to the current state of German Politics as the country comes to terms with the consequences of unification...(A)uthoritative and full of insights...(t)his book is simply essential reading.' - David Broughton, Political Studies
