Show Summary Details


Drawing on theories of strategic culture, this book analyses the process and outcome of Germany's transformation. It shows how the new German security posture is based on a working consensus between two very different domestic schools of thought about international security and Germany's role in the world. It examines the lengthy and at times acrimonious domestic German out-of-area debate as it unfolded in the German Bundestag—the debate's major public forum—in the period between the first Gulf War in 1991 and the war against Iraq in 2003.
