After the first quarter century of development since the overthrow of Communism and the reunification of East and West Germany, how does one draw up a balance sheet?  How can one assess the transfer of political institutions, the economic crises, the difficulties of women’s adjustment?  There were substantial successes but also significant failures. Many of the international moves of the Berlin Republic can only be understood by considering the difficult process of adjustment during and after unification. 

Konrad H. Jarausch is the Lurcy Professor of European Civilization at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Senior Fellow of the Zentrum für Zeithistorische Forschung in Potsdam, Germany. His more than 40 books cover topics from the First World War to German unification and questions of historical methodology. He is now writing a history of European experiences in the twentieth century entitled “Taming Modernity?”
