Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Political and social scientists, historians, and other European scholars share a framework for analyzing the transformation and its two key tenets: the transformation process affecting advanced industrial societies generally, and the process of post-communist transformation pertaining to Germany. They begin by placing the new Germany in Europe, then look at economic changes in the decade since reunification, and social experiences and attitude change. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
