From Occupation to Cooperation: The United States and United Germany in a Changing World Order

Paperback
During the Cold War, West Germany's closeness and dependence on America was essential in defeating Communism. Now a reunified Germany has emerged once again as a dominant power in Europe. What shape will the pivotal US-Germany relationship take in the years ahead? Where do the two countries' economic and security interests overlap, and where do they diverge? How will the two countries share responsibility in a partnership that will be a keystone of international order. In this collection of essays, a joint German-American effort sponsored by the American Assembly and Atlantik-Brucke, leading voices from both countries provide counterpoint views on these questions.
