Charles Lees provides a fresh perspective on the politics and personalities of post-war Germany’s most unstable—and apparently unpredictable—national government to date. He uses previously unpublished research into Red-Green coalitions in the German states in order to understand more clearly the nature of the pressures acting upon Germany’s first national coalition between the Social Democrats and the Greens.
