The Silent Partner: West Germany And Arms Control
The Silent Partner: West Germany And Arms Control
By Barry M. Blechman and Cathleen Fisher
Ballinger, 1988, 266 pp

This book attempts a kind of "mapping" of another government that is rare in foreign policy analysis. It brings public opinion and political party data down to fine-grain analysis of individuals and bureaucratic process in seeking to identify the critical determinants of West German arms control policy.
