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.
