In this authoritative book, the only work to cover the full sweep of German foreign policy since the end of World War II, noted scholar Helga Haftendorn explores Germany's remarkable recovery from wartime defeat and destruction. Through a chronological series of case studies, her book offers a document-based account of sixty years of German policymaking. Tracing both continuity and change in foreign affairs, the author emphasizes especially the importance of membership in the European Union, joining NATO, integration of the German economy into the world market, and reunification. Scholars and students of contemporary Germany, Europe, and East-West relations will find this nuanced and knowledgeable study invaluable.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This title is to be welcomed as the first major overview of postwar German foreign policy in English since Wolfram F. Hanrieder's Germany, America, Europe: Forty Years of German Foreign Policy, which first appeared in 1989. * H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online *
A sober and intelligent overview of German foreign policy in the whole post-World War II period written by one of the most important people in the field. It offers an invaluable historical perspective on Germany's relations today with the rest of the world, especially the United States. -- Marc Trachtenberg, University of California, Los Angeles
Americans will have to take a new look at Germany after the break over the war in Iraq. This book is a good place to start. It is the best single introduction to contemporary German foreign policy in English. Professor Haftendorn knows both her subject and her audience well and conveys a complex history in a clear and accessible style. -- Stephen F. Szabo, Johns Hopkins University
A lucid and balanced analysis of Germany's diplomatic evolution and role in the world, especially in the realm of security and strategic issues. It will be a very useful book in courses on postwar Germany. -- Stanley Hoffmann
