German Unification in the European Context

German Unification in the European Context

By Peter H. Merkl and Ger-Joachim Glaessner

Pennsylvannia State University Press, 1993, 448 pp.

A solid account of the events that led to the reunification of Germany, its costs and consequences both within and outside Germany, and German opinion about reunification (the young being far less supportive than those over 50). Glaessner's contribution is a chapter on the distinctive features and the demise of the late German Democratic Republic.
