The period since the reunification of Germany has been the most tumultuous since the end of World War II. Uneasy relations between East and West, new immigrants and native Germans, left and right, and labor and business mark this phase of German history. As Kohl's Christian Democrats yield power after sixteen years, Germany's destiny is in a state of flux.

The Federal Republic of Germany at Fifty makes sense of these dizzying changes. Twenty-six essays by leading scholars deal with topics such as the role of the Greens, women in the new German intellectual and literary scene, and the effects of political and cultural change on German national identity.

Contributors include Christopher J. Anderson, Thomas A. Baylis, Gerard Braunthal, William M. Chandler, Clay Clemens, Kenneth H. F. Dyson, Werner J. Feld, E. Gene Frankland, Arthur B. Gunlicks, M. Donald Hancock, Jutta Helm, Michael G. Huelshoff, Karl H. Kahrs, Gerald R. Kleinfeld, Henry Krisch, Gregg Kvistad, Peter H. Loedel, Joyce M. Mushaben, Helmut Norpoth, Ann L. Phillips, Robert Rohrschneider, Marilyn Rueschemeyer, James Sperling, and Henry Ashby Turner, Jr.
