Ann Phillips's book is an important contribution to a small but burgeoning literature on the role of united Germany in the new Europe. This book is a valuable contribution to our understanding of German-ECE relations. * International Affairs *
This thoughtful and well-researched study examines the questions of what constitutes power in the new Europe, how it can be translated into influence, and where the line is between influence and hegemony. * German Studies Review *
The author's research is solidly illustrated and well arranged, with access to internal documents and more than a hundred interviews with important players in the four countries considered in the book. * The European Library *
A unique approach to understanding post-Cold War German foreign policy even into this new era. * International Politics *
Phillips' examination of German levels of influence in East Central Europe breaks down the widespread stereotype of a Berlin Republic, in conjunction with German business, intent on reestablishing political and economic control in its hinterland. * Royal United Services Institute For Defence Studies Journal *
A compact, insightfully written book with a well-defined research question and clear findings. It is to be strongly recommended to graduate and undergraduate students and scholars of German politics and contemporary European history. * Journal Of European Area Studies *
