This study evaluates Germany's role in the new Europe, from claims that the "Berlin Republic" will be a new hegemony, to arguments that Germany remains essentially a civilian power committed to multi-lateral integration and pan-European cooperation. Adrian Hyde-Price examines the the present European order, and outlines an innovative framework for analyzing German foreign and security policy, drawing on the insights of social constructivism and classical realism. German policy towards the eastern enlargement of NATO and the EU is also examined closely. The book concludes by evaluating Germany's potential contribution to the forging of a stable peace order in Europe.

The study of German electoral politics has been neglected of late, despite being one of the most pervasive elements of the German political process Geoffrey Roberts exciting new book argues that concentration on electoral politics facilitates deeper understanding and appreciation of German political system It provides explanations and analysis of the federal electoral system, its evolution and the challenges which have been made to its format; discusses the role of electoral politics in relation to political parties It goes on to evaluate the effectiveness of the German electoral system in relation to its functions, and challenges the premise that electoral politics makes a difference in Germany Ultimately the book aims to reconcile the apparently limited role which elections have in determining the composition of governments with the notion that there is a permanent election campaign in existence in German politics

Ist ein „deutsches Europa“ die bittere Frucht der europäischen Krise? In vielen europäischen Ländern wird es so wahrgenommen. Angela Merkel wird mit Hitler verglichen, die Rede ist von deutscher „Hegemonie“ und einem neuen deutschen „Reich“. Doch Deutschland ist heute ein anderes Land als im 19. Oder 20. Jahrhundert. Nur – welches? Einmal mehr könnte es zu einer Quelle der Instabilität im Herzen Europas werden. In German Power geht Hans Kundnani der Transformation Deutschlands seit der Vereinigung 1990 nach und stellt sie in den Kontext der deutschen Geschichte vor 1945. Dabei zeigt er Ähnlichkeiten auf und benennt einige Grundkonflikte – zwischen Kontinuität und Wandel, Ökonomie und Politik, Europa und der Welt. Kundnani kommt in seinem provozierenden Essay zu dem unbequemen Schluss, dass die „deutsche Frage“ wieder zurückgekehrt ist – in geoökonomischer Gestalt.

The 55th anniversary of a democratic Germany coincides with other important anniversaries in German history: the 15th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall; the 60th anniversary of the Normandy invasion; and the 90th anniversary of the start of the First World War, the legacy of which haunted the Federal Republic at its founding in 1949. This book examines how the past has placed constraints on the domestic and foreign policy discourse and practices within Germany, how it has shaped the evolution of the German political culture, and how it has hindered the reintegration of eastern and western Germany.
