Summary
Much has been made of the Federal Republic of Germany's stubborn disunity more than a decade after unification. This collection demonstrates at once the persistence of the initial anxieties about the new Germany and its rapid absorption of the former German Democratic Republic, and suggests as well a potential optimism, that despite much contemporary domestic disenchantment, the new Germany continues to thrive as a European democracy endeavoring to confront its past and embrace its transformed and increasingly diverse culture. Transformations of the New Germany proceeds historically from unification to the present tracing a series of case studies from several of unified Germany's highly contested debates
