Containing Germany : Britain and the Arming of the Federal Republic, Hardback Book

Containing Germany : Britain and the Arming of the Federal Republic Hardback

Part of the Contemporary History in Context series

Description

This book presents a radical reappraisal of British policy towards West German rearmament until the Federal Republic's incorporation into NATO and contains a series of major new theses on British attitudes towards European integration, Anglo-Soviet relations and the 'Special Relationship'.

It places policy in the context of Anglo-German distrust, American demands for a German contribution and British fears of antagonising the Soviets.

It clarifies numerous controversial issues by demonstrating British willingness to compromise with the Soviets over German unification, the British military's desire to reduce the continental commitment and Eden's enthusiasm for a European Army.
