This book forms part of a series entitled Documents and Debates which is aimed primarily at sixth formers. Each volume therefore concentrates on a particular topic within a narrow span of time. It consists of eight sections, each dealing with a major theme in depth, illustrated by extracts drawn fromm primary sources. The series intends partly to provide experience for those pupils who are required to answer questions on documentary material at A-level, and partly to provide pupils of all abilities with a collection of source material, which will extend the normal textbook approach.

German Unification 1989-90

This volume is comprised of a collection of diplomatic documents covering British reactions to, and policy towards, the collapse of the German Democratic Republic and the unification of Germany in 1989-90. The peaceful unification of Germany in 1989-90 brought a dramatic end to the Cold War. This volume documents official British reactions to the collapse of East Germany and the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the evolution of British policy during the ‘Two plus Four’ negotiations that provided the international framework for the merger of the two German states. All of the documents fall within the UK’s 30-year rule and have therefore not previously been in the public domain. Most are drawn from the archives of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, but there are also a large number of Prime Ministerial files from the Cabinet Office archives. These are of particular interest for the light they throw on the views of Margaret Thatcher. Taken together, the documents show that despite Mrs Thatcher’s well-known reservations about German unity, the United Kingdom played a vital and constructive role in the negotiations that helped to bring it about. This volume will be of great interest to students of International History, British Political History, and European Politics and International Relations in general. Patrick Salmon is Chief Historian at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Keith Hamilton is a Historian at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Senior Editor of Documents on British Policy Overseas. Stephen Twigge is a Senior Historian at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Through a close reading of novels by Ulrike Kolb, Irmtraud Morgner, Emine Sevgi Özdamar, Bernhard Schlink, Peter Schneider, and Uwe Timm, this book traces the cultural memory of the 1960s student movement in German fiction, revealing layers of remembering and forgetting that go beyond conventional boundaries of time and space. These novels engage this contestation by constructing a palimpsest of memories that reshape readers' understanding of the 1960s with respect to the end of the Cold War, the legacy of the Third Reich, and the Holocaust. Topographically, these novels refute assertions that East Germans were isolated from the political upheaval that took place in the late 1960s and 1970s. Through their aesthetic appropriations and subversions, these multicultural contributions challenge conventional understandings of German identity and at the same time lay down claims of belonging within a German society that is more openly diverse than ever before.

Die Familie im neuen Europa

ethische Herausforderungen und interdisziplinäre Perspektiven

Familienpolitik im neuen Europa bedarf einer Leitidee, welche einerseits die vielfältigen kulturellen und sozialgeschichtlichen Traditionen achtet, andererseits aber auch eine qualifizierte Verständigung ermöglicht, die der grundlegenden Bedeutung der Familie als "primärer Schule der Humanität" gerecht wird. Eine solche Idee kann nicht extern entwickelt und vorgeschrieben werden, sondern indem man der Art und Weise, wie Familie lebt und ihr Beziehungsgeflecht entwickelt, Aufmerksamkeit schenkt. Das vorliegende Buch versucht diesen Weg unter ökumenischen und interdisziplinären Perspektiven zu beschreiten und die der Familie eigene Subjektivität als deren genuine Freiheit zu erfassen.

The understanding of history can be advanced only by the combination or alternation, of analysis and synthesis. Detailed research and generalizing survey are not antiethical but complementary. For a long time, however, the specialist has reigned supreme in our schools. The need is now, surely, for a return to synoptic writing. The present work was undertaken to supply the need of a synthesis. It is a map of a large region, not a geological chart of a square mile or the plan of a single city. Its value, if any, lies in its view of the interrelations of large tracts of social and intellectual life, not in the intensive investigation of narrow fields.

Martin Luthers 95 Thesen, in denen er gegen Missbräuche beim Ablass und besonders gegen den geschäftsmäßigen Handel mit Ablassbriefen auftrat, wurden am 31. Oktober 1517 als Beifügung an einen Brief an den Erzbischof von Mainz und Magdeburg, Albrecht von Brandenburg, das erste Mal in Umlauf gebracht. Da eine Stellungnahme Albrechts von Brandenburg ausblieb, gab Luther die Thesen an einige Bekannte weiter, die sie kurze Zeit später ohne sein Wissen veröffentlichten und damit zum Gegenstand einer öffentlichen Diskussion im gesamten Reich machten.
