This book was originally published in 1987, at a time when the future of a divided Germany went to the heart of East–West relations and European security. These essays examine the role of Germany in international politics, and shows how the 'German question' could continue to affect East–West relations and the politics of the Western alliance in the future. The contributors address such crucial questions as the existence, or otherwise, of a West German 'secret agenda' in its relations with the East; they ask about the relationship between the GDK and strict Soviet foreign policy interests; whether changes in Germany would lead to change in the central European system; and where West German commitment to unification would lead.
