What will German foreign policy look like in 2015? This book dares to speculate by making a provocative argument: what drives German foreign policy is its power position in Europe and on the international stage. By examining German manoeuvres in the Balkans, its role in European Monetary Union, and its leadership in curbing Europe's proliferation of WMD technology, Crawford shows how German power is linked to its "embedded hegemony" in Europe and the changing state of its economy. Together these forces shape German foreign policy.
