Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many thought that the "German question", which had shaped European history so catastrophically in the last century, had been solved for good in 1990. Furthermore, the elections in 1998 seemed to confirm that Germany was on the road to "normalcy". For the first time in postwar German history a ruling party coalition was totally unseated by elections. Germany thus finally joined other western democracies as a state where a change of government following elections is commonplace. However, starting in the new millennium many have begun to see Germany as a problem case in Europe yet again. This raises questions about the future of Germany and the performance of the Red-Green government that this book seeks to answer. The contributors to this volume examine policies and politics of the Red-Green government in Germany, put recent changes and developments in this country in a long-term perspective, and provide conclusions about future developments.

Synopsis:

"Like no other publication in English — or in German for that matter — this volume offers a truly comprehensive analysis of Germany's Red-Green government. The contributors, all experts in their field, provide critical insights into this government's policies, politics, preferences, and performance. A must read for students of Germany, Europe, and comparative politics." --Andrei S. Markovits, The Karl W. Deutsch Professor of Comparative Politics and German Studies, The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
