As Germany returns its national government from Bonn to Berlin, the country's politics have become more uncertain than at any time since World War II. Since unification there has been an ongoing debate, both inside and outside Germany, concerning its power, intentions, identity, and domestic structure. Examining the country's image of political drift, the authors focus on current debates regarding Germany's welfare state, European monetary policy, security policy, warnings about a supposed 'German hegemony' in Europe, symbolic or geopolitical implications of the return to Berlin, and new complexities in party politics and public opinion. The authors also question recent analyses that suggest the direction of German politics is either one of overall 'continuity' or fundamental 'transformation.' Although there is far more similarity between the Berlin Republic and its West German predecessor than there ever could have been between 'Weimar' and 'Bonn,' the authors also show that united Germany is in many ways more than an enlarged version of its successful forerunner. Intended for both specialists and generalists, this timely volume will be especially valuable for students of comparative and international politics who wish to understand the new Germany in its European and international context.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It is a suuperior example of the type, providing useful and insightful perspectives on current German politics. Recommended at all levels. * CHOICE *
An impressive collection of thoughtful assessments of modern German politics by fourteen U.S. and German scholars. This well-edited and indexed collection uses the return of the German capital to Berlin from Bonn as a point of departure for examining continuity and change in both German domestic and foreign policies. This book is useful for all levels of scholars interested in German affairs and offers an excellent format for periodic updates and new editions. * German Studies Review *
A timely and thoughtful book about the new Germany. Because Germany in many ways seems to be stuck and unable to reform itself, this set of excellent and provocative essays about major domestic and foreign policy issues should be read by all German policymakers. A first-class publication. -- Christian Hacke, Universitat der Bundeswehr, Hamburg
