About the Authors
  • The close association between the United States and the Federal Republic of Germany was a key element in the international order of the Cold War era. No country had as wide-reaching or as profound an impact on the western portion of divided Germany as the United States. No country better exemplified the East-West conflict in American thinking than Germany. The United States and Germany in the Era of the Cold War examines all facets of German-American relations and interaction in the decades from the defeat of the Third Reich to Germany's reunification in 1990. In addition to its comprehensive treatment of U.S.-West German political, economic, social, and cultural ties, The United States and Germany in the Era of the Cold War provides an overview of the more limited dealings between the U.S. and the communist German Democratic Republic.

    • Combines long overview essay on major areas of German–American relations with shorter studies of specialized topics, containing 146 essays by 132 contributors
    • Its international team of contributors provides multiple viewpoints and offers an array of interpretations on central questions of post-war history
    • Looks well beyond political and military issues in considering German–American relations, and gives full consideration to US-East German relations

    "The overall effect of the I^Handbook is to document the existence of profound and multifaceted bilateral influences that call for continued historical research. The result is an invaluable research tool for serious scholars and a more general audience interested in German-American relationsoThe I^Handbook will thus be an essential part of any library whose mission is to support research on Germany, U.S. foreign policy, and the Cold War." Daniel E. Rogers, University of South Alabama, H-German (H-Net)
