About this book


Developments in German Politics 2 provides a wide-ranging analysis of the political institutions, policy processes and party system of the Federal Republic in the years after unification. It gives an account of the key issues on the political agenda - economic governance, social integration, the legal order and civil rights, organised interests and gender politics. It also assesses the identity of the new Germany, its role in Europe and the wider international system.
