The Politics of the New Germany continues to provide the most comprehensive, authoritative and up-to-date textbook on contemporary German Politics. It covers the entire postwar era but has a particular focus on the post-reunification era. The text takes a new approach to understanding politics in the post-unification Federal Republic. Assuming only elementary knowledge, it focuses on debates and issues in order to help students understand both the workings of Germany's key institutions and some of the key policy challenges facing German politicians. Written in a straightforward style by three experts, each of the chapters draws on a rich variety of real-world examples. In doing so, it highlights both the challenges and opportunities facing policy-makers in such areas as foreign affairs, economic policy, immigration, identity politics and institutional reforms. The book also takes a bird's-eye view of the big debates that have defined German politics over time, regardless of which party happened to be in power. It pinpoints three key themes that have characterised German politics over the last sixty years; reconciliation, consensus and transformation. This 2 nd edition has been revised and updated throughout and features new material on: Grand Coalition Lisbon treaty Constitutional Court Financial crisis and credit crunch Reform of social policy Afghanistan

'This revised edition of The Politics of the New Germany, from a highly accomplished team of experts, combines depth of knowledge with a remarkably accessible format and a compact readability. It is authoritatively accurate and comprehensive. Simply put, it is now by far the single best text on modern German politics.' - William Chandler, University of California, San Diego, USA Praise for the previous edition 'This thematic treatment of contemporary Germany fills a much-needed gap in the student-oriented literature. The authors have succeeded in producing a fascinating and highly accessible account of all the key issues facing Germany today, making this book a 'must read' for any undergraduate student of German and European Studies.' - Paul Cooke, University of Leeds, UK 'The Politics of the New Germany strikes a perfect balance between the historical origins and evolution of the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic, the process and consequences of unification, and the future trajectory of a united Germany. Unlike many texts on German politics, the authors do not restrict their analysis to the domestic political and economic system, but instead present fully developed chapters on Germany's role in the European Union and Atlantic Alliance that successfully establishes the critical linkages between domestic politics and foreign policy. The three themes tying the book together---reconciliation, consensus, and transformation and adaptation---provide an accessible framework for students and faculty alike. The authors join this thematic consistency with a uniformly crisp and clear writing style throughout. There is no better introductory textbook on German politics available today.' - James Sperling, University of Akron, USA 'It is about time an up-to-date textbook on German politics came out. Thankfully it is this one. The authors are a formidable team and have performed a fine balancing act well: making sure there is enough historical context to make sense of the peculiarities of German politics, while also organising the material under headings that connect with wider themes in comparative politics. The illustrative material is helpful, the writing excellent throughout, and the structure engaging. The thematic approach - on economic management, welfare reform, the EU, foreign policy - is used well to exemplify issues raised about the wider setting of German politics, its institutional structures and party system. There is no doubt that this book shoots straight to the top of the recommendation list for my students.' - Charlie Jeffery, University of Edinburgh, UK "Recommended. All readership levels." - CHOICE, October 2008 Vol. 46 No. 02
