Donald P. Kommers, The Basic Law Under Strain: Constitutional Dilemmas and Challenges, in Domestic Politics of German Unification 135 (Christopher Anderson, Karl Kaltenthaler, & Wolfgang Luthardt eds., 1993)

Prominent German and US scholars examine the domestic political events that led to the unification of the two German states. The authors analyse the breakdown of the East German regime, the electoral politics of the unification year, political parties and their strategies, political elites, and the rise of right-wing extremism. They also investigate the challenges and problems caused by the unexpectedly rapid unification process.
