Summary

This study evaluates Germany's role in the new Europe, from claims that the "Berlin Republic" will be a new hegemony, to arguments that Germany remains essentially a civilian power committed to multi-lateral integration and pan-European cooperation. Adrian Hyde-Price examines the the present European order, and outlines an innovative framework for analyzing German foreign and security policy, drawing on the insights of social constructivism and classical realism. German policy towards the eastern enlargement of NATO and the EU is also examined closely. The book concludes by evaluating Germany's potential contribution to the forging of a stable peace order in Europe.
