Division and Detente: The Germanies and Their Alliances
Division and Detente: The Germanies and Their Alliances
By Eric G. Frey
Praeger, 1987, 194 pp.

A lucid account of German-German relations, a subject of great importance and murkiness. Frey argues persuasively that close relations between the two German states signal not the desire for-let alone the coming of-reunification, but a continuing political accommodation to the status quo. A useful, timely and astoundingly up-to-date analysis.
