In Europe's Name: Germany and the Divided Continent by Timothy Garton Ash
This is a comprehensive study of Germany's relationship with Europe since the Second World War. Garton Ash explores, in considerable detail, the division of Germany and the various initiatives -diplomatic, ideological and political, that emerged since 1945 to reconcile and unite East and West Germany. He also examines Germany's key role in central Europe with Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia. This is a work of cossummate political analysis and is unquestionably Tim Garton Ash's most outstanding book. It will be published simultaneously across Europe and in America.
