This newest reference title in the Companion series documents the postwar history of Germany from defeat and occupation to economic prosperity and eventual unification. The author provides information, for example, on political parties and office holders, living standards, crime and the environment, and Germany's relationship with the European Union, East Germany up to 1990. Attention is also devoted to topical issues such as opposition and dissent in the East, terrorism, neo-nazism and racial violence. Included are political chronologies, thumbnail biographies of all the key people and a glossary of specialist terms. This is an essential reference book for anyone interested in, teaching, studying or writing about postwar Germany.
