The Germans: Rich, Bothered And Divided

The Germans: Rich, Bothered And Divided

By David Marsh

Century, 1989, 364 pp.

The Bonn reporter of the Financial Times has written a reliable survey of West Germany, anno 1988, based on well-chosen interviews and anecdotes, on shrewd perception and analysis. He depicts, inter alia, the West German press, industry, arms-makers, the Greens-and, of course, relations between the two Germanys. Out of date, as is yesterday's newspaper, but rich in information about the Germanys that is still relevant.
