The Federal Republic of Germany at Forty-Five
Donald P. Kommers, The Basic Law and Reunification, in The Federal Republic of Germany at Forty-Five 187 (Peter H. Merkl ed., 1995)
This book tackles the question of just where the new Federal Republic of Germany stands after 45 years and where it appears to be headed. The central concern of this volume is the nation's evolving united—or disunited—sense of identity. This identity, in a constant state of flux, takes many forms: the striking differences between East and West German views; German pacifism and national pride; the role of Germany in the world; the reemergence of radical right groups; and opinions towards foreigners and the right of political asylum. Of central interest to scholars of German and European history and politics, this book is a thorough assessment of Germany in the post-wall era.
